From Ocean's Eleven
, to Snatch and Fight Club, Brad Pitt is not new to the world of underground violence. It’s no surprise then that he was selected for the role of Jackie in Killing Them Softly, now DVD
. In this film, directed by Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), Pitt is a mob fixer in charge of bringing back some order into the criminal hierarchies of New Orleans, now out of control following 2 consecutive robberies in poker rooms. Also starring Ray Liotta and Richard Jenkins, Killing Them Softly brings a distinctive, realistic approach to the novel written by George V Higgins.
