"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

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, even if not everything did work and even if it was nothing really original, it turned out to be such a disturbing movie, I don’t think I will soon forget it.

Finding himself in considerable debt, Chris a Texan drug dealer, decides the only solution is to murder his mother to collect the insurance money. Getting together with his father, the ex-husband of Chris' mother, they decide to hire Joe Cooper a contract killer, who also happens to be a police detective. The plan is that the money will go to Chris' sister Dottie. However due to the size of the contract fee, Chris agrees that Joe can take Dottie as a retainer until the insurance comes through.

"Varsinainen perhe-elokuva. Poika-Smith houkuttelee isäpappa-Smithin palkkaamaan palkkatappaja listimään äitikullan tämän vakuutusrahojen tähden. Kukaan ei oikein välitä äidistä, mutta suunnitelmat karkaavat käsistä, kun palkkamurhaajaa-poliisi Joe (Matthew  McConaughey) iskee silmänsä Smithien nuorukaiseen Dottieen (Juno Temple)... Varsin houkuttava naiivi neito onkin saanut vaikutteensa Vladimir Nabokovin Lolitasta. Sanotaan vielä, että McConaughey pääsee tässä varmasti en"

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, even if not everything did work and even if it was nothing really original, it turned out to be such a disturbing movie, I don’t think I will soon forget it. Basically, this movie had 2 things that worked really well. First, they gave us  this very ominous atmosphere, especially during the opening scene which was quite spellbinding. Then, of course, you had Matthew McConaughey who was just starting to make one of the greatest come-back ever in motion picture history.

"30 March. There is not much of a story in Killer Joe, but the characters are too entertaining to ignore, and actors play them in their own unique way. Matthew McConaughey's killer for hire belong in a glossary of weird character descriptions, he almost seemed to have been playing himself. "
