Fresh off its debut at Cannes, where from all accounts the film made quite the impression, comes some new images from Andrew Dominik’s mob flick “Killing Them Softly”. Judging by these images, the film looks like a drama with dashes of sudden bloody violence rather than all-out action. Which is not surprising to anyone who has seen Dominik’s “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” (still the greatest, most ponderous movie title in history in my opinion, much like the film, natch).
When someone robs a high-stakes card game under the protection of the local mob, ruthless mob enforcer Cogan springs into action.
Starring Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Sam Shepard, Max Casella, Bella Heathcote, Scoot McNairy, and written/directed by Dominik.
Killing them dead, but softly dead, September 21, 2012.
