The Card Counter movie review: Oscar Isaac plays a professional gambler in Paul Schrader’s haunting redemption drama

  • Isaac is a soldier with a dark past who thrives on the order and discipline of his modest gambling career, until his regimented life starts to unravel
  • Schrader – whose notable script credits include Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver – has been here before, but his film is no less bleak or powerful for that
