I am an avid fan of movies, I enjoy movies with sound story and one that touches my soul and brain. I happen to collect great message from the movies like La Strada Tokyo Story and the like. I'm professionally an engineer, I have accumulated larger interest in movies over the past 15 years, since my childhood.
Johnny "High Spade" Williams: Well, that's the way it was. The old man sired two sons. One was no good... never was any good. Robbed a bank... a stagecoach. Then when he came home and wanted to hide out, the old man wouldn't go for it. So Dutch shot him... in the back.
Killer Joe - crime-drama written by Tracy Letts and directed by legendary William Friedkin (The Exorcist). Starring Matthew McConaughey, Thomas Haden Church, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Gina Gershon. It is adapted from Tracy Lett's Play of the same name. Made over the budget of $10 million the film was biggest disappointment (though). It premiered at Venice International Film Festival and in North America at Toronto International Film Festival. William Friedkin was nominated for 'Golden Lion' and won Golden Mouse; at Venice International Film Festival.
Film opens with Chris (Emile) knocking and yelling at the door of his father Ansel (Thomas Haden Church). Chris has been gambling, this habit has brought him into close clutches of shark-loans - who are now apparently looking to kill him, if he failed to pay back the dues within few week. Chris' father is timid and subservient man who lives with his second slutty-looking wife 'Sharla' (Gina - who walks bottomless around the house) and a 12 year old daughter 'Dottie' (Juno Temple). Chris informs his father about $50,000 life-insurance money in the name of his first biological mother - the two conspire to murder her to receive an amount.
Chris invites Police detective 'Killer' Joe (Matthew McConaughey) a pervert, but descent, loyal and yet harsh - he is in the tow to kill Chris' mother - however Joe puts his condition that he be paid first in advance ($25,000) which is met with disappointment (since both Chris and Ansel are broke). Joe spots charmingly looking teen sister of Chris, 'Dottie' and asks them to spend nights with her - to which they agree.
Amazing story, it has everything to tribute to Southern environment. These actors (apart from Matthew who has already given much material on the material including Dallas Buyer's Club - Mud) adopted the accent and dwellings of the area. William Friedkin does not shy away from showing blood, kicks-to-face, can-fists to face, smashes, chops, and everything. The final scene should leave you speechless - including a scene where Joe (Matthew) holds chicken-leg piece before his pubic-area and asks Sharla (Gina) to suck on it, as if giving him head - it's terrific scene.
