Killer Joe

Chicago Reader
9 May 2014

Killer Joe

Film-O-Holic
14 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Killer Joessa on runsaasti samoja elementtejä kuin Andrew Dominikin Killing Them Softlyssa (2012). Friedkinin näkemys on likaisen perverssi, Dominikin tyylitellyn särmikäs.

DVD Review: Killer Joe

Brutal as Hell
24 October 2012
  • Excerpt: When a seasoned director of note steps back behind the camera, it puts an inevitable slant on the viewing experience. We can’t help but reflect on past glories and relate them to what we see before us now.

22 August 2012

Film Guide
22 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Blackly comic, and oft-times just black, William Friedman’s Southern Gothic murder mystery (minus the mystery) Killer Joe, based on a play by Tracy Letts, is ostensibly in the mould of many a graphic crime thriller filled with double-dealing cops, idiot wannabe criminals, and alluring ladies.

19 January 2013
  • 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.

9 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Удивительно, что приблизившийся к восьмому десятку Фридкин до сих пор остаётся в здравом уме, живя настоящим, а не прошлым, предпочитая не рефлексировать или ностальгировать, а остро скалиться на то, что видит вокруг себя сегодня.
