Nina Menkes’ no-budget 1991 study of an alienated Las Vegas blackjack dealer (played by the filmmaker’s sister and muse Tinka Menkes) seems especially prescient now, considering subsequent trends in world cinema. Made with a series of very long, contemplative takes, it envelops the viewer in the psyche of the protagonist, who haunts the streets and corridors of a city that sleeps all day.
