HBO Max has just added a film that should be on many Marvel and Star Wars fan's radar

HBO Max is now the streaming home for The Card Counter, the drama-thriller written and directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Schrader

For those unaware, the official description for the film reads as follows: "Redemption is the long game in Paul Schrader's The Card Counter

Told with Schrader's trademark cinematic intensity, the revenge thriller tells the story of an ex-military interrogator turned gambler

He serves his time for this horrible thing that was told to do and did willingly, and when he gets out, he feels like it wasn't enough

He's still traumatized by what he's done so he decides to live this life that's quite empty and repetitive, in this purgatory

There would be some moments where there would be a question or change this little bit but, really, he writes in a way, like, subliminally, as well

There's all these pauses and weird things so it's not so direct, it's not so linear, so that's really exciting as an actor
