Fassbinder. Pitt. Cruz. Bardem. Diaz. Wow. This may be one of the most beautiful casts ever put together. But don’t let that fool you. Ridley Scott’s The Counselor is going to get into some ugly business.
The drug trafficking thriller got a trailer from the UK yesterday, and let’s just say, it had me at the twang. Scott, for all his blockbuster cred, makes better small movies. And it’s from the first original screenplay that Cormac McCarthy has ever written. My guess is this is a movie worth waiting for.
