Killer Joe

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Killer Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) kills people. For $20,000 he will take care of any problem you have, permanently. That is, when he's not tied by his day job as Dallas homicide detective. And that's the good news. The bad news is that down-on-his-luck wannabe drug dealer Chris (Emile Hirsch) doesn't have enough cash up front to hire Killer Joe to take care of his down-on-her-luck wannabe drug dealing mother, so he puts up as a retainer the only thing he has Killer...

Killer Joe Blu-ray Review

  • Summary: It's never a good idea to brand people with labels. Case in point: my eldest sister, who is quite a bit older than I am (well into her sixties now) was driving through a North Carolina parking lot when she evidently inadvertently cut off another driver, a young and apparently fairly hot headed African American woman who screamed out at my sister, "Watch out, you crazy crack ho!

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: As Friedkin mentions in the featurette, SXSW intro and the commentary, the intent of the film is elicit a strong response from the audience. He mentions that though he is not concerned which side of the fence the audience lands, he is concerned with the viewers experiencing some kind of emotional reaction from the events depicted on screen.

  • Excerpt: Matthew McConaughey is this generation’s Robert Mitchum. This isn’t to say that the prime years McConaughey squandered shirtless in dire romantic comedies put him on equal footing with the iconic star of The Night Of The Hunter and Out Of The Past . But they have the same dangerous magnetism—lithe, relaxed, preternaturally self-assured, and almost feminine in their power to seduce.

  • Excerpt: The opening titles are simple but accurate: "William Friedkin's Film of Tracy Letts' Killer Joe ." And make no mistake--William Friedkin has made a film of it, but this is undeniably "Tracy Letts' Killer Joe ." Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winner's first play, it is a dark, twisted, chilling piece of work, and with this writer, that's saying something. It is also Friedkin's second film adaptation of a Letts play, after 2006's harrowing (and underseen) Bug .

  • Summary: Killer Joe is a superbly written, well-acted redneck thriller that’s quite obvious about its stage-play roots. While the build-up is entertaining, it’s the third act goes completely bonkers. Eliciting laughs one moment and disturbing craziness the next, the audience were unsure (even nervous) of how to respond, which made me love it even more. It also gave me a newly warped definition of the term ‘double down’.

  • Conclusion: Family dysfunction to make Jeremy Kyle blush, but thanks to McConaughey’s oily power and Friedkin’s unflinching purpose it’s a compelling beast.
