El Biffo's rating of the film Joe

5 stars for Tye Sheridan, a compelling actor, 1 star for Nick Cage, a tired performer. He was great in MOONSTRUCK, which was a long time ago. I almost subtracted another star for gratuitous violence toward animals, including a scene where Cage kills a dog so he can screw a hooker. To make it worse, we a forced to watch his butt bobbing up and down, Is it just me, or does anyone like watching that?
