TRAILER: Killing Them Softly
by Winston "Stone" Ford
I’m not going alive, I thought some this film had to do with the 1973 Roberta Flack song “Killing Me Softly. Let’s just say they’ll hope Miss Flack get some royalties from the Weinstein Company.
What I can say is that I’m a sucker four gritty gangster film. And this flick, starring Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini, looks to be a winner. The film, based on the 1947 book Cogans Trade, focuses around a cat and mouse game between mobsters and low-level hitmen. Directed by Andrew Dominik, the trailer already plays up the seed Mob underworld to a tee. Let’s just hope the movie can deliver when it drops on October 19th.
