OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Joe

A dense and unsettling stare into the depths of masculine weakness. Joe features incredibly strong performances where the actors are existing true, in each moment with a freshness that is riveting to watch. It's all held together by a driving score that's drenched with dread. My only gripe was the writing of the final act and it's resolution. Solid direction. 4 stars
