Mentioned by Sidney Lumet
The movie's basic premises are very similar, as in both films priests, who struggle with their faith, are approached by young men who struggle with dangers threatening earth, wondering if the future holds any hope. Schrader has also mentioned Bergman as an influence for this movie.
