Though I’ve watcehd the trailer three times, I couldn’t really tell you what The Counselor is about? Drugs, sex, maybe a hit man, a fixer, a femme fatale? I dunno. But Michael Fassbender is in it. And Penelope Cruz. And Javier Bardem. Cameron Diaz. And Brad Pitt, sporting that white cowboy hat that made him a star, although he keeps his shirt on, at least in the trailer, and he’s decidedly more scuzzy. Even if it’s just an hour and a half of Ridley Scott flash cuts and menacing music, with this cast? I’m OK with that.
The Counselor opens in late October.
