Blue Collar ★★★★½

"You shouldn't say that about Uncle Sam..."

Gonna be brushing up on Paul Schrader's movies before I see First Reformed, so I decided to start with his directorial debut. Blue Collar starts off feeling like a working class precursor to Office Space (downtrodden workers decide to steal from their superiors), but eventually turns into something much darker, and more thought-provoking. I'm not sure how much I liked the end result, but I'd definitely recommend it either way, if only because the central trio are all awesome in their respective roles.

Edit: Re-rating this 4.5 instead of 4.0. It just seems right to me.
