Killer Joe

Chicago Reader
9 May 2014
  • Excerpt: William Friedkin and Tracy Letts are a match made in heaven—or, perhaps more accurately, hell. Friedkin, a Chicago native, made a name for himself directing The French Connection (1971) and The Exorcist (1973), brutal dramas that became touchstones of the so-called "New Hollywood." Letts, a member of the Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble and a Pulitzer Prize winner for August: Osage County , launched his career as a playwright with Killer Joe , about a sadistic Dallas cop who...

Film review: 'Killer Joe'

Las Vegas Weekly
22 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Killer Joe opens with a young man (Emile Hirsch) banging frantically on the door of a trailer home; it’s opened by his stepmother (Gina Gershon), who’s naked from the waist down and scoffs aloud at his suggestion that she cover herself. And that’s the movie in a nutshell: an invitation for you to be gleefully appalled by unapologetic sordidness. Rarely has such an abundance of talent, on both sides of the camera, been employed to such brutally impoverished ends.

Film Guide
27 May 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. Когда «Киллер Джо» получил рейтинг NC-17 , отгораживающий фильм от основной аудитории американских кинотеатров — подростков, режиссёр только обрадовался и выставил его своим ответом Голливуду, предпочитающему только тех самых подростков и...

  • Conclusion: Filmen: Chris - ett sluddrigt slödder från Texas blir blåst av sin morsa i en knarkaffär som resulterar i att han blir skyldig pengar till några mindre förlåtande gangsters. Råskinnen insisterar såklart på att få tillbaks sina pengar. Men Chris finner en utväg. Tillsammans med sin sparsamt begåvade farsa, sin white trash-styvmamma och sin trasiga lillasyster planerar han att ta kål på morsan en gång för alla för att inkassera hennes livsförsäkring.
