Independent Cinema - Killing Them Softly Review

Independent Cinema writes: The one convention that gangster and mob flicks always associate with themselves is a capitalist society. Most of the time, these aren’t on-the-nose references but those looking for the parallels between the sloppy murder of a target and a poor economic structure are bound to find them. It takes an expert director to use subtlety for a convention we all expect to find in a film genre, but perhaps it’s more difficult to show the theme of a gangster flick alongside the film itself, and still entertain. That’s what Andrew Dominik has attempted to do here with his sophomore effort, Killing Them Softly, a ruthless film about the poor economy and how it can impact even the lowest, and seemingly most disconnected from reality, societies. It is brash, and very heavy-handed in its delivery, but it also contains a finesse to it that shows how the possession of money is so transitory and what it does to those who rely on it too much. (Cinema, Killing Them Softly) -
