EXCLUSIVE: Andrew Dominik Talks ‘Killing Them Softly’ Blu-ray

Although it didn't take off at the box office like I had hoped it would, director Andrew Dominik's brilliant Killing Them Softly was one of my Top 10 movies of 2012. Chocked full of brilliant performances from Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, and Scoot McNairy, this adaptation of George V. Higgins centers on the fallout from a high stakes poker game robbery, set against the backdrop of the 2008 Presidential elections. I recently had the chance to speak with Andrew Dominik about his fascinating drama, which debuts on Blu-ray and DVD March 26. Here's what he had to say.

I'm not normally a huge fan of deleted scenes, even in movies I love, but I really enjoyed these deleted scenes. Are these the ones you were trying to fit in and you just didn't have room for?

EXCLUSIVE: Andrew Dominik Talks ‘Killing Them Softly’

Director Andrew Dominik talks about his new dramatic comedy Killing Them Softly, arriving in theaters nationwide November 30

Australian filmmaker Andrew Dominik first made his mark with the 2000 drama Chopper, a film that introduced the world to Eric Bana, who was primarily known as an Australian comedian. He returned seven years later with The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, starring Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck. This weekend, the director is back with his third feature, the fascinating Killing Them Softly, and since there is only a five-year gap between projects this time, I can only hope this means we only have to wait three years until his next picture. Brad Pitt stars in this adaptation of George V. Higgins' novel Cogan's Trade as a mob enforcer who tries to unravel the bizarre robbery of a high-stakes poker game, brilliantly set in New Orleans 2008, against the backdrop of political elections and economic strife. I recently had the chance to speak with Andrew Dominik over the phone about his new drame, which debuts in theaters nationwide November 30. Here's what he had to say.
