I found it to be fascinating. I am thinking about writing an academic paper on his film Mishima: A Life In Four Chapters. He started out as a film critic that was a disciple of Pauline Kael until he decided that he wanted to try his hand at writing/directing films. I enjoyed his critical essays on Sam Peckinpah and Film Noir.

Paul Schrader comes into the Russian Tea Room, the classic 1970s power room, wearing mostly black, which seems appropriate. He asks if we’ve met before and I tell him yes, in 1972. That was when I saw him deliver a lecture about his book, Transcendental Style in Film, about the work of cinema’s most austere directors, Robert Bresson, Carl Dreyer, and Yasujirō Ozu. Schrader was 26 years old then, just recently out of Calvin College where, like everyone else, he minored in theology.

Paul Schrader’s Auto Focus is a straightforward case. Bob Crane’s voice-over appears early in the film, though not at the very start, and recurs six times before the final scene. As happens with The Seventh Cross and other films using voice-over narrators, the second half employs the device less intensively than does the first.

Terrific stuff. Schrader has enlightened and entertained as a film critic, screenwriter, and director. Paul wrote or wrote and directed The Yakuza in
1975, Taxi Driver was released in '76, he had a hand in writing Rolling Thunder, released in '77, then went on to direct Blue Collar and Hardcore by
the end of the decade.

If you ever wondered what goes on in the mind of the screenwriter who gave us TAXI DRIVER and RAGING BULL (as well as directing such films as the remake of CAT PEOPLE and the literary biopic MISHIMA), then look no further than this absolutely wonderful collection of interviews with Paul Schrader. Covering everything from his thematic obsessions to his writing and directing methods (as well as including a selection of critical writings by Schrader from his pre-filmmaking days as a critic), Kevin Jackson has done a wonderful job with this book - my personal favorite in the great Faber & Faber series (which also includes CRONENBERG ON CRONENBERG and SCORSESE ON SCORSESE). Must reading!
