Killing Them Softly
Since the cast of Killing Them Softly boasts of names like Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta and Richard Jenkins, one does not really need to wait for the film’s reviews to rush into the theatres! However, when the puffs suggest that the film has all the trappings of a perfect thriller comedy, it is an added bonus anyway!
Killing Them Softly, which was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, has received similar acclaim from the lucky movie critics who could attend the festival! The film is based on the novel Cogan’s Trade by George V. Higgins, and traces Jackie Cogan (played by Pitt), an enforcer who is hired to kill (obviously) a couple of thieves who rob a high-profile poker game!
These robbers are as dumb as one can get; even in the trailer you see them prove this by wearing ladies’ stockings on their faces to remain unidentified!
Coming to Brad Pitt, he always manages to look cooler than one can anticipate! Pitt comes across as the coolest enforcer around with those aviators, cigar and his beard -- someone who can kill girls with his looks itself, just saying!
Here’s a snatch from the trailer worth mentioning: “You ever kill anyone? They cry, they plead for their mothers. I like to kill them softly…from a distance.” Reminds you of Pitt’s brutal acts in Inglourious Basterds, doesn’t it?
Anyhow, the film will reportedly release in India this October! The final word, however, is yet to come! Meanwhile, catch the trailer of Killing Them Softly below and some official snaps on the following pages; and don’t draw inspiration from the film’s title!
