    Killing Them Softly

    ★★½

    This movie is so on the nose, Heroin by the Velvet Underground plays in the background while two junkies shoot up. Ben Mendelssohn is the best performance and role and everyone else, with the exception of Gandolfini, is either bad or forgettable. Everyone else was pretty bad including Brad Pitt. Bad shots and audio and everything else too.

It has that old time movie feel with the 16:9 ratio, but you just know off the bat a movie this good wouldn't be made this way when black and white film was still a thing. Awesome visuals of the absolute hellhole that is the island and such a creepy performance…
