...is a perfect example of exactly how not to write film criticism. He calls the film "utterly pointless" near the start of the review and towards the end, he wraps up with "The point of this vile, cynical and ultimately preposterous film..." So which is it, Rex?
Another gem (on the New Orleans setting): "For all the cinematic advantages offered the camera by one of the most photogenic cities in the world, all Mr. Dominik chooses to show are ugly alleys, freeways at midnight and seedy hotel rooms." It's not a travelogue, Rex, it's a crime flick.
One last thing: "But if Killing Them Softly belly flops as noisily as I predict it will..." Aaand... what does that have to do with the quality of the film? Why is that being brought up in a review?
