Not my favourite movie ever, but I really loved Keitel's acting, and the first part, where we see the trials and manipulation the working class has to undergo. But the political plot was a bit too out there for my taste.
First of all this is mostly Richard Pryor's movie. His persona is all over the film, but in a good way because he plays the character in a straight way. I just wander how good would Pryor had been if somebody offered him more roles like this. Second what i like the most is that basically the three main characters are flawed. Even with the arc they all go trough there is no chance for redemption. A really great movie.
