The Card Counter ★★★★

Me: Can't stand comic book movies. They're all the same.

Also me: Oh, there's a Paul Schrader movie about a haunted, introspective man obsessed with sin who is trapped in a stultifying, repetitive milieu? And he becomes preoccupied with saving a younger person but he's ultimately doomed to carry out a shockingly violent act? And there's a Pickpocket ending? And a moody, goth-rock score?

Four stars.
