After First Reformed, I'm excited for anything from Schrader, especially with Isaac as the lead.

The film, written and directed by Schrader, follows William Tell (Isaac), a gambler and former serviceman who sets out to reform a young man seeking revenge on a mutual enemy from their past.
That's a name ripe for interpretation!

Sheridan must be playing the "angry young man" that Tell takes under wing.

Throw in Haddish and Dafoe and this is one fascinating cast.

From the Metrograph interview also linked in the Filmmaker thread for Schrader:
In my films, I’ll sort of combine two worlds that seem to have nothing to do with each other. In the new one, it’s the world series of poker and Abu Ghraib.
