Sublimely unsettling "black hole comedy"

"You ever hear of Joe Cooper? He's a cop. A detective actually. He's got a little business on the side."

It's been forty years since filmmaker William Friedkin tested the boundaries of what's acceptable in modern cinema with his 1973 horror opus The Exorcist. Friedkin's Killer Joe (finished in 2011 but released last year) finds the director back in this territory, mounting a controv... read more

Il ritorno alla macchina da presa del settantasettenne Friedkin avviene con l’adattamento che Tracy Letts fa del lavoro teatrale con cui esordì nel 1991: un piccolo noir quasi da camera, vincitore del Mouse d’Oro a Venezia 2011, percorso da una violenza per gran parte sotterranea, ma comunque profondamente disturbante. Film così non ammettono mezze misure, o li si ama o li si odia: le ragion... read more

"1.2, Viaplay Käsikirjoitus on ihan näppärä mutta McKonahyy ei vakuuta vieläkään. Loppu oli melkoista herkkua niin näyttelyn, ohjauksen kuin käsikirjoituksen osalta."

"Watched November Sorry, I'm blown away over here. So I'll defer to PvtCaboose91 since he's already covered everything I might have said given enough time to piece my thoughts together. This is definitely NOT a film for everyone, but I couldn't help but be consistently impressed by it & love it despite all the ugliness on display throughout."

2014 : Movie Diary (40 movies items)

" When a debt puts a young man's life in danger, he turns to putting a hit out on his evil mother in order to collect the insurance. directed by William Friedkin What can I say ? When I read the synopsis I wasn't expecting something like this, that movie is disturbing and shocking in so many ways. I though it was about to be an average movie, just a bit entertaining. I have never been so wrong in my whole life. Actually, few movies managed to shock me like this. It was kind of fascinating, Joe"

"23.1. Hyvästä syystä kehuttua Friedkiniä, joka yllätti törkeydellään. Junttilassa asustavan perheen jäsenet haluavat koko ajan toisensa hengiltä: esimerkiksi isän huolehtiminen pojan ongelmista on tasoa "ammu vaikka itsesi". Sivutoimenaan murhia suorittava McConaughey (jolta jostain syystä näen vain ne hyvät roolit) kiinnostuu puolestaan perheen 12-vuotiaasta tyttärestä. Asiat menevät hupaisalla tavalla päin persettä, ja vaikka nyt jäin vielä metsästämään elokuvan todel"

Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2014 (390 movies items)

"15.1 Tää oli hyvä. Tän voi helposti luetella Fargon ohella parhaaksi "kaikki menee päin pöpelikköä" elokuvaksi. Conaugheyltä loistava suoritus, yleensä kun mies tuppaa rasittamaan meikäläistä. Aiheuttaa ahdistuksen tunteita, mutta toisaalta taas nauroin päin naamaa Hirschin esittämälle nilkille, joka luuli tekevänsä hyvänkin suunnitelman. Friedkiniltä toki osasikin odottaa vähintään kelpo pätkää, mutta sain enemmän."
