Blue Collar is just one of actor Harvey Keitel’s best films. In a career filled with stunning performances, Taxi Driver, Mean Streets and Fingers to name a few, Paul Schrader’s Blue Collar stands out. The 1978 film is a lost gem. Happy 77th birthday, Mr. Keitel!
From my book Lessons in the Dark…
“Blue Collar is the story of the have and the have-nots, the powerful and the powerless. Corrupt unions doing whatever possible to keep the working man in their place. A system beating you down, destroying your hopes, dreams and even your decency.”
