As a screenwriter, Paul Schrader made a name for himself in the film industry early on: After writing the template for Sydney Pollack’s «Yakuza» and Brian De Palma’s «Black Angel», he followed in 1976 with his script for Martin Scorsese’s work of the century » Taxi Driver » . Breakthrough. As a result, Schrader primarily sat down in the director’s chair himself to film his own screenplays — and for the most part remained true to his «Taxi Driver».

Exceptions such as «Cat People» or «Mishima» confirm the rule, but as a rule the works of Paul Schrader revolve around lonely, guilty men who despair of themselves and the world — and are therefore on a death-wishing search for redemption.

After Schrader was able to make an impressive comeback in 2017 with the Oscar-nominated » First Reformed «, after being treated as a persona non grata in Hollywood for a long time, » The Card Counter » started in German cinemas in March of this year.

The complex poker thriller starring «Moon Knight» star Oscar Isaac , Tiffany Haddish («Lady Business»), Tye Sheridan («Ready Player One») and Willem Dafoe («Spider-Man: Far From Home») will be released on November 27th May 2022 — so really shortly after the cinema release — on Blu-ray and DVD. The film is currently available as VoD on Amazon Prime Video.

That’s what «The Card Counter» is about

William Tell (Oscar Isaac) perfected the fine art of card counting. Not just as a hobby, but also to somehow keep his inner demons under control. The former elite soldier has a guilt that once landed him in prison for ten years. After his release, he begins touring the States as a poker player, following a strict routine.

In order not to draw attention to himself, he consistently keeps the stakes low — until he finally meets the young Cirk (Tye Sheridan). The two have a common enemy and Cirk wants to recruit the former soldier for his revenge plan. William, on the other hand, sees the young man as his chance for forgiveness. Together with the opaque agent La Linda (Tiffany Haddish), he wants to play for big money for the first time — but the past cannot be shaken off so easily…
