Brad Pitt is making the flick star thing look darn easy.
Since he last collaborated with Andrew Dominik, he's starred in the Coen brothers' Burn After Reading, David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life, and Bennett Miller's Moneyball.
It's been arguably the best stretch of his career, one vacillating between comedy and drama and defined not by summer blockbusters but by provocative director-oriented fare.
The bookends to the period are Dominik's The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Killing Them Softly, which made its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this week.
Things are going great even as Pitt insists that movie-making is not his top priority.
"Right now, I'm just attracted to being a dad," said Pitt in an interview in a hotel penthouse in Cannes.
"Film-wise, we get to do this thing and I feel very fortunate to get to do this.
So I want to contribute to the art form.
I think the flicks have to speak to our time and be authentic in their approach."... See Complete Article @ Cineplex
