The Card Counter


Recommended Posts

So, it's nowhere near as gripping or profound as First Reformed, but it's the 9/11 film America deserves.  Schrader remains fixed on the US-Iraq War as a symbol of American moral bankruptcy.  And the names of his protagonists remain just as significant: from the "earnest toller" of First Reformed, to Will Tell of his latest.
