Veteran director William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist) gets down and very dirty with this juicy crime noir. Based on screenwriter Tracy Letts' 1993 play, the action centres on the Texas trailer-trash family to end them all. Desperate for dough, degenerate drug dealer Chris Smith (Emile Hirsch) hatches a plan with his moronic father (Thomas Haden Church) and slutty stepmother, Sharla (Gina Gershon), to have his mother murdered and split the 50-grand insurance payout. Enter 'Killer' Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a smooth-talkin' local cop with a profitable sideline as a hitman. Nothing's that simple of course, and once Joe's lecherous eye lands on Chris' virginal sister, Dottie (Juno Temple), things go from bad to extremely worse for everyone. Sleazy, salacious, darkly comic and with jaw-dropping scenes of conduct unbecoming even the low-lifes depicted here, Killer Joe is killer stuff.
