Paul Schrader Rips Mission: Impossible 7: ‘Tiresome Claptrap’

While critical reception for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One has been overwhelmingly positive, renowned writer and director Paul Schrader has a pretty poor opinion of the Tom Cruise film. Schrader, best known for his work on Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and American Gigolo, is known to share his opinions of films and television by way of his Facebook page, where he is very active. He’s recently praised Oppenheimer (calling it “the best, most important film of this century”), called the American Gigolo remake a bad idea, and questioned the historical authenticity of Babylon. Now, he’s set his eyes on the latest Mission: Impossible film. Schrader called the film “tiresome claptrap” and critiqued the film’s writing: “There’s no reason that AI, given the correct prompts, could not have written this script,” he shared.
