Killing Them Softly is a juicy, bloody, grimy and profane crime drama that amply satisfies as a deep-dish genre piece but with political and historical depth.

Money, men, and murder. The worlds of Wall Street and Goodfellas collide beautifully in Killing Them Softly, a violent, witty and hugely entertaining flick about a crumbling mafia empire based on George V. Higgins’ novel “Cogan’s Trade”. After three dimwitted guys unwisely rob a Mob protected card game for 100k, they send the local criminal economy into a collapse. Steely Cogan (Brad Pitt) is the side-burns cool savvy enforcer hired to track the three thieves down and restore some much needed order. However, Coogan’s preferred style to kill “softly” is known and the ruthless specialist Mickey (James Gandolfini) enters to further complicate matters.
