Blue Collar ★★★★½

Went into this thinking it was a comedy and saw Paul Schrader directed it which instantly changed my idea of what this was going to be. Man, this is a heavy movie, just brutal. Richard Pryor has some of the best natural anger I've ever seen used in a movie. Yaphet Kotto is always stealing the scene in any movie he's in and this might be one the best things I've seen him do. This movie is great, but absolutely miserable to think about after it all sets in. The fact that Paul Schrader does not have an Oscar is why the Oscars are garbage
