Movies Out Now: The Card Counter

Oscar Isaac plays William, an ex-military interrogator turned gambler in Paul Schrader’s crime drama film The Card Counter. As William goes on with his life, he is haunted by the ghosts of his past decisions. Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan, and Willem Dafoe also star.

The Card Counter opened on Thursday, September 9 to many rave reviews.’s Cassandra Yany said she was pleasantly surprised by how the plot turned out:

“Knowing that The Card Counter was a crime drama, I expected there to be intense events taking place throughout the film with some action. However, there was none of that. While the events that unfolded in the movie were rather simple, the intensity lay more in the emotion behind the characters’ motives.” Read the full review here!

Other audiences thought The Card Counter brought the emotional depth that Paul Schrader focuses on.
