KILLING THEM SOFTLY October 19 » Andrew Dominik follows up his lauded revisionist Western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford with this revisionist mafia movie, an adaptation of George V. Higgins's 1974 novel Cogan's Trade. A couple of punks rob a mafia-protected poker game, which proves to be a poor exercise in risk management. Somehow this becomes a metaphor for the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. With Brad Pitt and Ray Liotta as daunting thugs.
