Killing Them Softly

A professional enforcer investigates the brazen robbery of a high-stakes mob poker game in this darkly comic crime thriller directed by Andrew Dominik ("Chopper", "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford") and adapted from a novel by George V. Higgins ("Cogan's Trade"), now transposed from the 1970s to the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. Livid over the fact that three low-level thieves have crashed the entire underworld economy, the mob's top brass hires Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt) to see that the bandits pay for their crime. The closer Cogan gets to his target, however, the more he finds his mission complicated by an alcoholic hit man who's well past his prime, incompetent gangsters, and the playboy host of the inauspicious game. With James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins and Sam Shepard.
