Jessica Chastain, Brad Pitt and George Clooney in The New York Time's awards feature

One of the highlights of awards season hype has quickly become the New York Times Magazine's awesome vignettes featuring the years' hottest performances. Last year they gave us mini-scenarios with Natalie Portman, James Franco and Vincent Cassell—this time it's THE TREE OF LIFE's Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain and THE DESCENDANTS' George Clooney in A Touch Of Evil. Masterful!


Half of the fun is figuring out what classic film's inspired the micro-short films: in this case for Brad it's David Lynch's Eraserhead, Jessica is lighting up Bertolucci's The Conformist, and George portray's the madcap Captain Bligh in Mutiny on the Bounty.
