Killing Them Softly DVD Each character plays its own role and is perfectly cast. The dirty gutter junkie over the petty criminal who has no friends in his own words, and his only "friend" gives up after a brief struggle with it-yourself-but. Dishonesty and false loyalty are just two of the topics that are addressed here. The dialogues and images make this film a piece of art. Dirty, smoky, and all still in slow motion. This clever and perfectly timed dialogue. Brad Pitt is brilliant in his role.
