mjgildea's rating of the film Killer Joe

Um, holy shit. I'm not sure if I'm more shocked by a decent performance from Matthew McConaughey or that Holy-Fucking-Shit ending. Killer Joe is white trash noir with an ending which kind of appropriately reminded me of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Killer Joe kind of meanders from time to time but grabs you by the throat and makes goddamn sure it has your attention. Jeeeeesus Christ...!
