Since beginning his career as a director with 1978's BLUE COLLAR, Paul Schrader has been one of the most consistently uncompromising, sometimes brilliant, occasionally frustrating and always striking filmmakers of the past few decades. While never gaining the fame or managing to be as prolifically great as his peer and collaborator Martin Scorsese, in many ways the film career of Paul Schrader has been at least as interesting.
This weeks poll focuses on the wild canon of Mr. Schrader and I will also be looking at his first, and to many his greatest, film BLUE COLLAR in detail later in the week. Perhaps even a couple of others as well.
The poll is located to the right and vote for as many favorites as you like. For those interested in my past looks at Schrader, my multi-post look at CAT PEOPLE can be found here and my article on PATTY HEARST can be read here.
Thanks in advance to everyone who will vote this week and I hope the results turn out to be of interest.
