MOVIE REVIEW

Paul Schrader is an excellent writer. It’s his directing ability that holds him back. Even still, there is an appeal to the raw, stripped-down approach he takes, even if it makes you feel like there is a better, more powerful movie lost somewhere in a waste bin in his basement. Some find Schrader’s style enthralling, convincingly excellent (look at the overblown acclaim for First Reformed). Others, like me, wonder if The Card Counter, an at times enthralling if ultimately emotionally distant drama-thriller, could have been one of the most explosive films of the year in the hands of a different filmmaker.
