Blue Collar ★★★★★

Paul Schrader is a national treasure. And it’s truly criminal that one of the greatest living screenwriters hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar until this year. I have a feeling he will win too. A sympathy win. But don’t get me wrong, he should certainly win for First Reformed. It’s the best film I saw this year, and one of his best. But Blue Collar will always be my favorite directorial effort from Schrader. It’s so brilliant.
