Killing Them Softly – Trailer

11 Aug

Directed by Australian Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), Killing Them Softly is a gritty journey through the underbelly of New Orleans. The  mob/heist movie stars Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Australia’s Ben Mendehsohn, and also signals a welcome return to form by Ray Liotta. The film is an adaptation of George V. Higgins’ 1974 crime novel, Cogan’s Trade, which is set in Boston. The trailer shows Dominik’s flair for dark humour and cinematic violence – both hinted and graphic. “Have you ever killed anyone?” Pitt’s character asks. “They cry and they plead. They call for their mothers.” He adds: “I like to kill them softly, from a distance.”
