    Killing Them Softly

    ★★★½

    Man I can just keep watching this movie. It's Dominik's always-excellent direction, cinematography, cast - I just like watching Dominik work. The heroin scene is my favorite heroin scene in a film. The card game robbery, the slo-mo shooting, Pitt & Gandolfini. Mendelsohn nails utterly disgusting trash, Scoot McNairy (had to look up that spelling) is really outstanding and should be spoken of more, I quote his hammy New England drawl all the time. "It's stoopid it's FAHKIN STOOPID."

    Giving my honest opinion about movies like this is just too mean.

    ★½

    At some point the adults in the room will realize they can't keep peddling Hammond's insane dream as something virtuous (Crichton didn't romanticize the character like Spielberg did, who projected his own desire to spoil children - which, come to think of it, sure explains why he cast Santa Claus in the role). Real pity they could only tiptoe up to the notion of animal rights, but I have a sneaking suspicion these writers are trained to space out their material (inevitable future franchise installments have to be about something, after all); zoological-industrial complex to be discussed in Jurassic Universe.

    "Fuck Amok." Seen for the first time in the cinema - and I recommend everybody see it this way, as the inevitable walkouts seem central to the viewing experience.
