Mark your calendars for your chance to pick up Killing Them Softly. A worthwhile effort, and great turn by Brad Pitt (I don’t say that often), this is one that didn’t get enough attention in theaters.
I’m actually curious to see how the special features turn out, and, given the lack of information, what they turn out to be. A Making Of is bound to be of some interest, but I’d love a commentary track here.
