  • Blue Collar is a 1978 American crime drama film directed by Paul Schrader, in his directorial debut. It was written by Schrader and his brother Leonard, and stars Richard Pryor, Harvey Keitel and Yaphet Kotto. The film is both a critique of union practices and an examination of life in a working-class Rust Belt enclave. Although it has minimal comic elements provided by Pryor, it is mostly dramatic. Schrader, who was at the time a renowned screenwriter for his work on Taxi Driver (1976), recalls the shooting as a very difficult one because of the artistic and personal tensions between himself and the actors (as well as between the stars themselves); also stating that it was the only occasion he suffered an on-set mental breakdown, which made him seriously reconsider his career. The film was shot in Detroit and Kalamazoo, Michigan. (en)
