Emerging director Andrew Dominick come out swinging in this nonsensical gangland farce. Based on the novel .Cogan's Trade. by award winning post WWII author George V. Higgins, .Killing Them Softly. adds another chapter to the entertaining side of murderous gangland thievery. Although one of the leads is legendary TV mob player James Gandolfini (plays Mickey, the assassin with a late-life crisis) it is mob enforcer Jackie who is at the center of the action. Playing the semi-competent Jackie, Brad Pitt steals the show. Although some might compare this film to the TV show .Sopranos. with Gandolfini, actually it has much more in common with the 2008 Coen Brothers / Brad Pitt comedic success, .Burn After Reading.. Both films feature »
