Killer Joe is a stage play adapted for the screen this year and starring Matthew McConoughey. This twisted tale of Texas trash licks the envelope. The cast really carries this pretty simple story of greed and murder. The story is reminiscent of noir stories of the 1950’s, but with a bit of a harder edge.
The ending is intended to disturb, so it’s not for the squeamish. Still, a pretty engaging low-budget adaptation now out on DVD.
