Director Paul Schrader’s father was a strict Calvinist so he was not allowed to view movies until age 18, but boy did he make up for it. While in his early 20’s he wrote a screenplay that he peddled around and it became one of the greatest of American films, Taxi Driver. With the fame that this brought him, he was quickly director of Blue Collar, Hardcore, and American Gigolo’s, all examining the underbelly of urban America, all those things he was not allowed to know about until the age of 18. Light Sleeper’s first scenes are of uncollected garbage piling up in the streets during the NY garbage collector strike, certainly a sign of the slime, crime, and corruption about to hit us in this movie.
