Modern-day crime classic's are hard to find.
Crime has an always be in our world. So will the need and problems of money. Andrew Dominik's 'Killing Them Softly' stars Brad Pitt as a hit man ordered in to clean up a job after a robbery at a poker game went horribly wrong. Through this wee see many criminals such as Ray Liotta as a poker club owner for mobsters to gamble, James Gandolfini as a disgusting criminal, and two new comers playing robbers. 'Killing Them Softly'definitely has its intense moments, but that's not what kind of film it tries to be. Andrew Dominik's message is about how money is always driving people, as well as crime can reflect a human soul. The film takes place during the 2008 Obama/McCain election which ties into the plot of money due to these men trying to solve America's economic chaos. Brad Pitt is excellent as Jackie the hit man who provides cool looks and interesting dialog through. The supporting cast is brilliant and Andrew Dominik delivers a reflective story on the greediness in American's and a new crime classic that has awesome characters that are not forced for a second, and excellent filmmaking to back up this modern day crime classic from a filmmaker that will hopefully become Oscar- worthy in the future.
