Well, looks like Andrew Dominik is going to stay pretty faithful to the George V. Higgins source novel “Cogan’s Trade” for Killing Them Softly.
See Smokin Monkey’s book review HERE.
It’s going to be real interesting to see how this film goes over if it seeks a larger audience. It might unfortunately suffer the same fate as George Clooney’s The American which boasted an action-heavy trailer and delivered a meditative, existential spy film with small bursts of action. Which also reminds us of Drive.There is definately a place for these types of movies, let’s hope Killing finds its audience so more films like this can be made in lieu of Iron Man 13:Citizens on Patrol and Avengers 6: Mission to Moscow in 5-D.
