When it comes to America's worst environmental disaster, Brad Pitt says the punishment delivered should be more than just monetary.

“I was never for the death penalty before — I am willing to look at it again,” he says in Spike Lee's new documentary for HBO "If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise". The four-hour special takes a hard look at New Orleans five years after Katrina struck — and covers everything from the city's recent Super Bowl victory to the current oil disaster.

If there's anything surprising about Pitt's comments, it's that it took so long for him to make them. The actor, who owns a home in New Orleans, has been outspoken in his support of the region post-Katrina —and has worked hard through his Make It Right foundation to rebuild the devastated Lower 9th Ward. While other celebs with ties to the area have stepped forward, Pitt has been strangely quiet. Turns out, he was the most angry of them all.

To check out the rest of Pitt's interview, catch the premiere of Spike Lee's film tonight on HBO at 9 p.m. (ET). A trailer for the documentary is below:
