The movie is set in 2008, as evidenced by political ads, but a late model (2009 or later) white Mazda sedan can be seen on the street in one of the scenes. Model years are typically released in the prior calendar year. See more »

Director Andrew Dominik returns with a bang after five years in a fine exhibition of stylish yet technically powerful movie-making. Right from the start, the movie keeps the viewers glued to its scenes of raw roughness shot absorbingly by Greig accompanied with music of hip and class, at right places that blends well with the overall personality of the movie, a rowdy-cold production. The fine performances particularly from Brad Pitt as Jackie Cogan, a person of style and substance and Ben Mendelsohn as Russel, the drug addict, lifts the film up to many levels. There are some long conversation scenes which can probably give the viewers some time to scratch their heads and elsewhere, but looking at them with critical eyes, they seem well fit. The screenplay is smooth and does get funny at some places in a dry sorta way. In all, this one looks like a strong contender for this year's Oscars. Killing Them Softly definitely has my vote, easily among the bests of the year!
