The Card Counter

The Card Counter ★★★

there's a lot of weird details in this that make it seem fake, for example, the titular character has a huge upper back tat that appears to be written in comic sans. each and every motel and casino has a big, fake, CG placard or sign, every tertiary character is a poorly observed "type", likely emphasizing the total irrelevance of everything outside oscar isaac's interior life. i will say that dafoe always makes it look easy, for such a beloved actor he switches so well into unpleasantly edgy that its disturbing. best use of 360 VR since gonjam: haunted asylum
