"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

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 controversial NC-17-rated thriller which shows that the director still has a talent for the lurid. Killer Joe was written by Tracy Letts, who adapted his own stage play for the screen and who worked with Friedkin on 2006's polarising Bug.

"One of the best movies to come out this year. Matthew McConaughey is brilliant. So is Friedkin´s directing. What a black comedy. There are so brilliant scenes in this film. Especially the final scene in the trailer. Some of the best cinema in recent memory. "

"Killer Joe probably has the weirdest, most unexpected final five seconds of any film I've ever seen. Those last five seconds will make some people implode with laughter, and it'll make others complain about how anticlimactic it feels - I find myself kind of in between both reactions. Still, everything that comes before that is highly enjoyable stuff, more driven by an intelligent script than by high-octane action sequences. And you'll be shocked to hear this, but Matthew McConaughey gives us "
