This week on Pop Culture Confidential we welcome a legend of cinema to the show, Paul Schrader! He is the screenwriter behind such films as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Last Temptation of Christ and writer/director of American Gigolo and Light Sleeper, to name a few. Paul Schrader joins me this week to talk about his career, Travis Bickle, male anger, faith, love, Bergman and his spiritually brutal new work of art, First Reformed.
First Reformed stars Ethan Hawke as Toller, a priest overcome by grief from a personal tragedy and with a growing doubt in God, faith and morality. Amanda Seyfried and Cedric the Entertainer also star. First Reformed is out now on Blu-ray and DVD in Sweden. Available on US ITunes.
