Joe the King Reviews
i thought, as an eight year old child, what a weird and dark movie. it shows a kid smoking, a teacher giving the same kid a spanking, curse words, a mother yelling at her son, etc.
that's a lot for an eight year old , i must say, to absorb and take in and fully come to grasp with the point and plot.
but when i look back at it now, 6 years later, 6 years wiser, i've come to the conclusion that i would think that it was a pretty powerful movie, if i watched it today.
Don't watch this. Save yourself.
This was actor Frank Whaley?s directorial debut and I?ve read that he made a few mistakes in making this movie. I couldn?t tell. All I know is that whatever he did, he had me from the start. Val Kilmer and Ethan Hawke also appear in the film as part of Joey?s ?extended? family.
