Killing Them Softly

Brad Pitt stars as Jackie, a shady type brought in to clean up a mess after an organized-crime card game is robbed. His solution is to kill some people and get the game back on track—and he does it in a way that is both scary and fascinating. Directed by Andrew Dominik, who also directed Pitt in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, this is a good-looking movie that takes its sweet time. It’s also ultra-violent, with Ray Liotta enduring a screen beating unlike anything you have seen before. James Gandolfini shows up as a grouchy hit man who reminds of a washed-up Tony Soprano after the wife and kids have left. Pitt is just a bona fide movie star here, commanding all of his screen moments with seemingly effortless authority. It’s a great movie to look at, but it isn’t for everybody.
