Audience Reviews for Patty Hearst

Paul Schrader is well known for his writing talents but is often overlooked as a director which is a shame as this film is brilliant, it?s got a great balance of harsh realism and nightmarish existentialism. The cast are all on top form too. An interesting and thought provoking slice of American History. I love the soundtrack too!
