There isn’t much that you can say about The Counselor that will do it as much justice as simply listing the basic details:
– The first complete original screenplay from Cormac McCarthy
– Directed by Ridley Scott
– Starring Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz (looking like one seriously bad B-word)
I guess if you’re a stickler for a little more elaborate plot details, then I could include that The Counselor is about a lawyer (Fassbender) who decides to get into the cocaine business, only to find himself in way over his head, while his client (Bardem) looks creepy (as usual) and another guy (Pitt) doubles down on the creepy factor as well.
And that’s pretty much all we know about it, and yet here I am – both legs shaking as I stare at my calendar and wait for October 25 to get here already. Hopefully, these three clips might help us all stay sane.
