On the one hand, Killer Joe does get better as it progresses, but on the other, it’s also the first Friedkin movie I haven’t loved.
Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole.
William Friedkin serves up Trailer Trash Neo-Noir with a side order of Fried Chicken.
Killer Joe is directed by William Friedkin and adapted to screenplay by Tracy Letts from his own play of the same name. It stars Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Thomas Haden Church and Gina Gershon. Music is scored by Tyler Bates and cinematography by Caleb Deschanel. Plot finds Hirsch as Chris Smith, who because he is in severe debt to local thugs, hatches a plan to bump off his waster of a mother and claim the life insurance. Roping in the rest of his trailer dwelling family, he hires Killer Joe (McConaughey), a cop with a sideline in murder, but the Smith’s have no idea just what price they will have to pay for his services.
So pulpy, so amusingly dark, Killer Joe is one of those films that will sit at the top of many film fan’s best of lists for 2012. Yet if someone came up to me and declared it one of the worst then I certainly will understand. Undeniably it has no widespread appeal, you either get it or you don’t, you will either laugh along with Friedkin and his dark observations or you will feel the whole thing is just too ugly to be entertainment. Man it’s good to have Friedkin back pushing peoples buttons!
Filmed in Texas in under three weeks, Killer Joe is a film that walks the fine line of misogyny and perversity for perversity’s sake. But it never falls over that mark, even though these are scummy characters living in a scummy world, where there’s sex and violence, and violent simulated sex and nudity; all of which is cloaked by a sweaty crime gone wrong caper. Much of the film is dialogue driven, rest assured this is very talky, but the director wrings out much tension and salaciousness from every character interaction, the slow-burn approach only heightening the sense of dread. When the finale comes, and it’s a cracker-jack ending, there’s an almost merciful release that it’s all over. These are people you wouldn’t want to hang out with ever, only there’s Friedkin chuckling away to himself having made us spend an hour and forty minutes with this grime laden crew. If you feel like you need a bath afterwards, that’s perfectly natural.
Friedkin has garnered terrific performances from a top line cast. Hirsch (powder-keg), Church (naievity extraordinaire), Temple (virginal piggy in the middle) and Gershon (bold and suspicious), are all giving disturbing credibility to the material, but as good as they are they are trumped considerably by McConaughey. One of the most frustrating actors working today, much like Cage, a ream of poor movies adorn his CV, but once in a while he throws in a performance of such genuine quality that it begs to be acknowledged by his peers. Here as Killer Joe he lays on a Faust like menace, delivering his lines with clinically calm precision, yet still there’s a glint in his eye, we know a black heart beats there but he can charm a snake out of its basket, a girl out of her underwear…
Unflinching direction, bravura performances and neo-noir at its near best, one of the best films of 2012 so far. Well, to some of us at least…. 9/10
Who’s Left Standing?
Famed director William Friedkin (The Exorcist) returns to fine form. Killer Joe, directed by Friedlkin and based on a Tracy Letts story/screenplay, is a fine rendition of the old player getting played murder plot. A vignette of white trash playing out some worst case scenarios with, thankfully, much more photogenic role-players.
The film hangs on the roles of three central characters. The protagonist is a twenty-ish down and out loser named Chris played by Emile Hirsch. Hirsch brings a much grittier less Bohemian Johnny Depp to the table and it works here. His character is smart enough to know he’s in deep and empty enough to unwittingly dig his hole ever deeper. His younger sister, Dottie, played by Juno Temple is an extremely unique character. She’s both high functioning and almost mentally deficient in her total naiveté’ which we are led to think is a mental quirk. She exudes a kind a helplessness with natural beauty that can draw one in. Juno Temple, a relatively new face to American audiences, is quite effective in her portrayal of this integral character. Finally, Matthew McConaughey is perfect in what is actually a supporting role in spite of being the the title character, Killer Joe. McConaughey is in his best element where he is reined in from Hollywood bombast instead dripping with a sleazy lawman/killer persona. These three characters are this movie aptly supported by Gershon’s conniving Sharla and Thomas Hayden Church’s witless Ansel.
Killer Joe has a down and dirty indie feel which is totally right. The cinematography is immediate and not artsy in any way as if you are clearly seeing something you wish wasn’t happening. The final quarter ramps up with a tour ‘de force of the macabre supplied by McConaughey’s character and taken home with a kind of surprise loose-end “wham-bam” finale. All in all, this really works and separates itself from more typical murder stories, recommended.
Deceived by the Score . Shady Pointless Violent Softporn
I only review this to warn people who expect a well done dark thriller you will have to sit through a tedious one dimensional movie with a very violent debatable end, don’t trust the high score on this…it’s maybe one of those polarizing movies you either hate or like .
(Spoilers) I checked the scores and was expecting a good movie – nope around ~85 min a deal is being made and isn’t working out as it should,whoever believes there will be pulled much dark humor is wrong there are just 2 moments that could referred as dark humor on top of that anybody who seeks lynch style has to look closer Lynch’s movies are way more metaphorical,thorough and atmospheric. Oh i forgot most importantly there is some nudity in this flick. Basically the whole movie just desperately tries to build up for the last 15 violent minutes and it’s not like you are anticitpating them highly.
This Finale has some sudden gruesome violence very graphical remembered me of “The Killer inside me” it also includes a “mind” rape scene and ends in a fiasco which is borderline stupid cause the tortured low lifes even take the side of the punisher . Yes i’m angry i’ve seen this.
The movie is very misogynic it likes to be seen as a dark social criticism it went wrong and turned out to be plain boring and stupid yea she’s gonna have a baby – this will be our bad future violence, sex sex, a endless lower class who struggle so hard and are being abused by the law… ha ha ha
Anyways i always want to see something good in movies here i can tell you that the acting was well done and the camera wasn’t shaking still the story was bland and the movie just too boring , the characters too simple (Ok Matthew was a badass ,but a character whom you don’t feel you want to know more about or has more to him than that) and the whole movie too senseless to recommend it also the pacing was terrible.
