Paul Schrader

The Card Counter

110' - 2021 - Action, Drama, Thriller - Dialogue: English
Director: Paul Schrader Composer: Robert Levon Been, Giancarlo Vulcano With: Oscar Isaac, Willem Dafoe, Tye Sheridan, Tiffany Haddish
Redemption is the long game in Paul Schrader’s The Card Counter. Told with Schrader’s trademark cinematic intensity, the revenge thriller tells the story of an ex-military interrogator turned gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past decisions, and features riveting performances from stars Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan and Willem Dafoe.
“Schrader has spent much of his career peering into the dark abyss of troubled men’s souls. He creates another subject worthy of such examination in the title figure of The Card Counter, played by Oscar Isaac in an intense performance with the dangerous magnetism of Al Pacino in his early Michael Corleone days.” - The Hollywood Reporter
