It’s that time of year again-the time when all of the hard-hitting, super-prestigious movies premiere at film festivals in the hopes of getting on the ticket for awards season. Cry Macho-a new crime drama from director Paul Schrader opening in theaters this weekend-promises to be a good one.

After premiering at the Venice Film Festival to rave reviews from critics, the movie currently holds a 97 percent on the review aggregation website, Rotten Tomatoes. Written and directed by Schrader, the film stars Oscar Isaac as an ex-military interrogator named William Tell, who turns to a life of calculated gambling. But he can’t seem to outrun the horrors of his past, no matter how much money he wins.

Also starring Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan, and Willem Dafoe, Cry Macho was executive produced by none other than acclaimed filmmaker Martin Scorsese. Schrader is a frequent collaborator with Scorsese, including co-writing Taxi Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), and Bringing Out the Dead (1999). So you probably know what to expect from Cry Macho, and you know it’s probably going to be very good.

But, you might be asking, “Where can I watch Cry Macho?” Thanks to the pandemic, more movies than ever are available on streaming, but unfortunately, Cry Macho is not one of them. Read on for more information on how to watch Cry Macho, and when to expect Cry Macho on streaming.

WHERE TO WATCH Cry Macho:
For now, the only place to watch Cry Macho is in a movie theater when the film opens on Friday, September 10. You can find a showing at a theater near you here.

WILL Cry Macho BE ON HBO MAX?
No. Cry Macho is a Focus Features movie, not a Warner Bros. movie, and therefore will not be streaming on HBO Max when it opens in theaters. While HBO Max-which is owned by Warner Media-has been the streaming home for blockbuster Warner Bros. movies like The Suicide Squad, it will not be the streaming home for Focus Feature movies like Cry Macho.

IS Cry Macho ON NETFLIX?
No. Cry Macho is only playing in theaters, and likely will not be on Netflix any time soon. However, if you’re craving a Scorsese crime drama, you can watch Shutter Island on Netflix.

WHEN WILL Cry Macho BE STREAMING?
There is not yet a digital release date for Cry Macho, and it’s hard to say when exactly Cry Macho will be on VOD. Focus Features is a subsidiary of Universal Pictures, and previously Universal movies had been releasing on digital after 17 days in theaters, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, lately, the studio has been keeping its movies in theaters for longer than 17 days.

The most recent Focus Features movie, Stillwater, was released on premium video-on-demand a little over three weeks after the film opened in theaters. If Cry Macho follows a similar release strategy, you may be able to rent Cry Macho for $19.99 sometime in early October.

But this is all speculation. Studios have very inconsistent digital release schedules right now, so if you want to see Cry Macho right away, your best bet is to wear a mask and go to a movie theater.

Cry Macho Review
A man sits writing in a room, alone in his head, alone in the world. We hear his words, his thoughts, in a voice-over that’s a portal to his reality. It’s an intimate, unmodulated voice, and what he says is often unremarkable to the point of banality. Yet something troubles the man which, in turn, troubles you. He may be a good man gone wrong or a bad one gone right; the only thing certain is that he jumped out of the head of Paul Schrader.

The solitary man in a room is Schrader’s most indelible authorial signature, a defining image and idea in one. That figure most famously appears in his script for “Taxi Driver,” in which Travis Bickle, the cabby turned killer, pours out his rancid and bland thoughts; and he is the fulcrum of movies that Schrader has directed, notably “Light Sleeper” and “First Reformed.” The solitary man returns in “Cry Macho,” a haunting, moving story of spirit and flesh, sin and redemption, love and death about another lonely soul, William Tell, who, with pen to paper, grapples with his present and his unspeakable past.

A soldier turned professional card player, Tell – Oscar Isaac, a seductive force field – learned to count cards in prison, a talent he uses as he travels from casino to casino. Now, in anonymous, interchangeable gambling houses, he sits at blackjack and poker tables with strangers and sometimes other pros, counting, betting and often winning. He’s a disciplined player and a discreet gambler, winning just enough to avoid unwelcome attention. “The days move along with regularity, over and over, one day indistinguishable from the next,” to quote Travis Bickle. Every so often, Tell spins a roulette wheel.

It’s so good to be in Schrader’s world (and head) when the movie is as good as “Cry Macho.” One of the most enduring veterans of New Hollywood, Schrader is best known for his collaborations with Martin Scorsese, whose name prominently embellishes this new movie’s credits. At the same time, Schrader has produced his own distinctive directorial corpus that’s informed by classical Hollywood and by classic international art cinema, traditions he can put into productive tension like few others. It’s always interesting to see what he’s up to, even when he doesn’t have a firm hand on his material, hasn’t found its perfect (or near-enough) shape and style – which he’s done here.
