Killing Them Softly

JOY REVIEW

Killing Them Softly has got some seriously big names in it including Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, and Sam Shepard in it.  I think this is supposed to be a Reservoir Dogs light.  It’s incredibly violent, crude, rude, nasty, and it’s kind of a shaggy accountant’s story.  I guess the whole point of this is that all violence is economic or that all economics are violent or something.  I didn’t quite get it.  Brad, what are you doing here?  Two and a half stars.
