Cannes: "killing Them Softly" Amusing And Confusing

I’m divided on “Killing Them Softly” a film by Director Andrew Dominik – the director of a previous critically acclaimed film that the general U.S. audience did not appreciate, The Assassination of Jesse James... Killing Them Softly on the surface is enjoyable and entertaining. It has moments of awkward and shockingly funny humor about sex with animals, men and women; comments about treating the mobster world as a corporation; and comments that tie the current political landscape with the gangster world.
