The Card Counter (Netflix disc):

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 haunted by the ghosts of his past.

I can see why Martin Scorcese produced this. The story is whatever cliched, but the character study in it is great. It’s slow, grimy, deliberate, calculated…a very slow burn. I do recommend it.
