Wish you guys had made an exception and ranked (or made a special mention besides his directorial efforts) of good/bad/ugly scripts for the movies written but not directed by Schrader. I've always thought of Schrader as a writer that happens to also direct but, primarily, is a writer. A quickie recap of his good/bad/ugly movies that he only wrote would have helped.

Great show even though I have to admit to having a weakness for "Cat People" and being a sad panda that it was universally panned by the canuck council. I really came out of listening to the podcasting wishing to see "Adam Resurrected," "The Walker," "Light Sleeper" and "Forever Mine" (sorry). 8)

I've only seen ''Obsession'' , ''The Mosquito Coast'' and the Scorsese flicks he wrote ( no ''The Yakuza'' yet, sorry Andrew) so I can't really rank them yet. Being an MST3K fan I'm sure you'll get a kick out of ''Forever Mine''... I rather enjoy Cat People too it's got a great look, loads of atmosphere and copious amounts of naked Natassja Kinski; too bad the script and the editing kinda suck.
