Schrader was recently released from Facebook Jail.

DEADLINE: We had a chat about The Card Counter last year during the virtual Cannes and you told me you were part of a Zoom poker game called Club Quarantine with Paul Dano among others – have you lost all your money?

PAUL SCHRADER: No, I got thrown out of that club, then I joined another one and I got thrown out of that one too. It all has to do with political correctness. I’ve never met these people, they’re just images on the screen. I said something that someone took offence to…

DEADLINE: It wasn’t that you were winning everyone else’s money?

SCHRADER: No, no. It was just impolite talk. But historically poker was all about men getting together to interact, but those days are gone I guess.

DEADLINE: You have to be more careful what you say now, particularly on the internet, even in a seemingly private setting.

SCHRADER: I’m off Facebook until the film comes out. Focus said that anybody can construe something you’ve said, it can become clickbait. That’s what all interviews would become about, and The Card Counter would be forgotten.
