A film by Paul Schrader
Richard Pryor delivers a funny, passionate, seething performance in one of his rare dramatic roles as a rabble-rousing union man working at the Checker Cab auto plant. Trapped by family worries and crippling back taxes, he dreams up a robbery after scoping out their union headquarters and enlists his coworkers, family man Harvey Keitel and high-living bachelor Yaphet Kotto, who are in similar financial straits. This is a strictly amateur-hour heist, and their successful getaway is the last bit of good luck in store for the trio.
