    If First Reformed and Winter Light were novels, no one would question the plagiarism involved, and yet Paul Schrader gets away with plagiarizing Winter Light by making a few changes, so he can pretend he has written something original with a few influences.

    The funny thing is, I didn’t realize the two films were so similar when I chose the matchup. I figured there was a religion connection and that would be the most significant comparison. I guess you can give Schrader credit for not totally ripping off Winter Light. But he does kind of rip himself off when he goes Taxi Driver at the end.
