” The central contradiction can be summed up thus: Mr. Pitt is a superstar who also happens to be something of a wild card. He has steered clear of action franchises and romantic comedies, the typical cornerstones of a major 21st-century screen career. Although he has not shied from big roles -they don’t come much bigger than Achilles (“Troy”) or Death (“Meet Joe Black”) – he has often sought the cover and camaraderie of ensembles, as in the “Ocean’s” movies and “Inglourious Basterds” (which are among his highest-grossing hits).”
