Paul Joseph Schrader (born July 22, 1946 in Grand Rapids, Michigan) is a screenwriter and film director, renowned for his characters that fall into desperation while their world crumbles around them.

His influences include Robert Bresson, Yasujiro Ozu and Carl Dreyer, whose cross-cultural similarities he examined in Transcendental Style in Film: Ozu, Bresson, Dreyer in 1972. Despite his credentials as a director, Schrader has received more recognition for his screenplays directed by others. -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul Schrader [Sept 2006]
