Watched Killer Joe over the weekend and thought it was much better than I was expecting. Found it twisted, but entertaining. I thought Thomas Haden Church and Emile Hirsch gave great performances as the dim-witted father and son. Juno Temple was amazing as the sister. Matthew McConaughey was good, but as in almost every role he plays, I just see Matthew McConaughey, not the character.
Overall, I liked it. Took me a while to realize it was filmed in Nola area(looks like mostly Westbank, Slidell, New Orleans East). Not a big fan of the ending:
Does she kill Joe? Does she ride off into the sunset with him and have her baby? I'm not clear on this. I want her to kill him and get the hell away from her nut job family that whored her out. She was a little cuckoo herself, but I found her kind of crazy endearing in that, awww, she's so clueless kind of way, but she wasn't as clueless as we were supposed to believe.
