Whatever Became of the “American Dream”? From Paul Schrader, the legendary director of Hardcore, American Gigolo, Cat People and Light Sleeper! When Detroit auto workers Zeke (Richard Pryor, Bustin’ Loose), Jerry (Harvey Keitel, Bad Lieutenant) and Smokey (Yaphet Kotto, Truck Turner) find bills piling up and pressures bearing down, they decide to rob their corrupt union office. In a cruel twist, their small haul becomes a nightmare when the heist goes horribly wrong and their once-loyal friendship turns to fear, betrayal and murder. Co-writer/director Schrader showcases the dark side of the American working class, creating a brutal vision of the low wage and huge debt that traps workers between big industry and big labor. Co-written by Leonavrd Schrader (Old Boyfriends, Kiss of the Spider Woman) and featuring Pryor in a rare, brilliant dramatic performance.
