'Killing Them Softly'

In Theaters: October 19th
Starring: Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini
Directed By: Andrew Dominik

When Brad Pitt is onscreen as a hitman mixing it up with an older counterpart (James Gandolfini) who's having a meltdown, Killing Them Softly radiates a film noir cool that's hard to resist. Pitt worked with director Andrew Dominik on The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford  and their styles mesh beautifully as violence and self-possession battle for control.
