Here’s some trivia for you. What writer/director, whose scripts include “Taxi Driver,” “Blue Collar,” “Hardcore,” “Raging Bull” and so many others didn’t even SEE a movie until after he turned 18? If you guessed Paul Schrader, give yourself a hand.
To honor a career that has spanned more than four decades, The Metrograph in New York City will be hosting a retrospect beginning this week, with screenings of five of his best known films and highlighted by a screening of his latest film, “Dog Eat Dog,” starring Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe. A Q&A with Mr. Schrader will be held immediately after this screening.
The other films chosen for this tribute include “Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters,” “American Gigolo,” “Patty Hearst” and “Affliction.” The retrospect runs from Saturday, October 29 through Tuesday, November 1.
