Watch Trailer

"You’ll leave the film unable to stop thinking about its dimensions."

— Cassie da Costa, Vanity Fair

"So this is a movie that, of course, is about much more than poker."

— Glenn Kenny,

"Paul Schrader's film grows more heated and crazed as the chaos of the past bleeds into a repressed present."

— Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine

"A great poker sequence makes you feel like you're seated at the table, at the heady center of the action, and 'The Card Counter' gives you that sensation."

— Owen Gleiberman, Variety

"A tale of trauma told, fittingly, with a poker face, Paul Schrader’s The Card Counter is a sure-handed rumination on redemption and finding peace of mind."

— Jim Slotek, Original-Cin

"Continues Schrader's intriguing relationship with altered states of consciousness in reaction to trauma via individuals who dissociate from their reality and enter a preternatural state."

— Carlos Aguilar, TheWrap

"It is a muffled primal scream about war, torture, trauma, grappling with who to blame and how to cope. However, the film ultimately proves that Schrader is a hopeless romantic at heart."

— Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service

"Paul Schrader has spent much of his career peering into the dark abyss of troubled men's souls. He creates another subject eminently worthy of such examination in the title figure of The Card Counter..."

— David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

"The Card Counter, with Isaac’s superb performance at its heart, might be the movie you didn’t know you were wishing for, coming at a time when wishing for life to restart has become a consuming preoccupation. The Card Counter, intense and vital and hugely satisfying, is pretty great."

— Stephanie Zacharek, Time

"It’s truly a wild, blazing ride if you get on the movie’s bruising, mesmeric wavelength, a tragic but deeply moral film about a righteous, transactional man who has truly weighed and considered the cost of the wicked transgressions committed against his country, his fellow man, and his own soul."

— Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist
