At What Point Did Brad Pitt Start Looking Permanently Greasy?

I'm going to do something a little unusual here, and compare Ridley Scott to Tim Burton. Not a comparison many would make. But both are well regarded directors who have unique perspectives and visions for their films, and who have been riding on their respective names and early successes for the last decade. Matchstick Men was the last Scott film that I enjoyed end to end, and since the, despite hype and potential of his projects, his films have been found lacking.

His most recent effort,  The Counsellor, is a hard nut to judge from this trailer. It certainly looks content to stew in it's own opulence, and with a cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz, it certainly doesn't lack in the "looking pretty" department. And, being written by Cormac McCarthy certainly doesn't hurt either. I just hope that it is ultimately worth looking forward to, because I've been burned by Scott specifically before.
