MAR. 3 ONLY
Blue Collar
Directed by Paul Schrader
Starring Richard Pryor, Harvey Keitel

Rated R | Runtime 1 hours & 54 minutes

Presented as part of FIRST LOOKS, highlighting the feature directorial debuts of filmmakers whose work continues to significantly impact film culture.

When Detroit autoworkers Zeke Brown (Richard Pryor), Jerry Bartowski (Harvey Keitel) and Smokey James (Yaphet Kotto) decide to rob their own union, they are initially disappointed by the relatively small haul. However, upon closer inspection, the three amateur thieves discover that they have made off with something potentially much more valuable than money: the union's ledger, filled with bogus figures and links to organized crime. Should they blackmail the union or go to the authorities?

"Ripples with tension. Schrader generates a cinema of impact. It is a very impressive first film, full of lively and well-calculated performances set in a grittily authentic-seeming time and place." - Charles Champlin, Los Angeles Times.
