‘The Counselor’

by Kaori Shoji

Director: Ridley Scott

Language: English

The reptilian charms of Michael Fassbender are in full effect in this dark tale of drugs, sex, betrayal and unspeakable violence. Fassbender plays a brilliant lawyer who gets in over his head with a Mexican drug cartel. Brad Pitt dies a gory death after spewing some impressive one-liners, Penelope Cruz is Fassbender’s fiancee, and Havier Bardem and Cameron Diaz turn out to be so evil they render everything tasteless for days.
