From doing bit-work on f*cking CSI and not having directed since Bug six years ago, William Friedkin, now 77, steps out of retirement with the cinematic equivalent of a bucket of KFC stuck right up Hollywood's ass. "Killer Joe" embodies everything good about Southern Gothic, Friedkin and not least its cast bringing out the best in everyone - McConaughey has never been better and deserves an Oscar. Yeah, you heard me. The last 30 minutes are among the most batshit crazy and entertaining in years.

Many films are about Faustian bargains but only one has Matthew McConaughey. This is a surprising morally complex story of white trash intrigue. It goes beyond conventional morality plays because instead of being a devil, Joe is the old testament hand of god collecting his dues, perversely reclaiming the wayward Mary, and punishing the sinful. It sidesteps the simplistic seducing innocents trope. There are NO innocents. McConaughey's sick acting is a once in a lifetime role. Pass the K fry C.

Hooooly shit. This is like William Faulkner and the Coen bros. wrote a screenplay together and it was adapted by...well, William Friedkin, who must have bigger balls than the rest of Hollywood combined. It's the most gleefully misanthropic, bleakest, most brutally hilarious dark comedy I've ever seen. It revels in squalor and vile behavior like few other films I've seen. Matthew McConaughey is revelatory.

A tale of awful people doing awful things to awful people. There's one character in this that isn't irredeemably awful, but she is a bit... "special," confused and enigmatic enough to defy my attempts to relate to her. With no relatable characters, it can be tough to stomach this film that seems to love wallowing in its own trashiness. Uncomfortable, disturbing and McConaughey is surprisingly awesome as the crazy, calculating, and wholly terrifying titular character. An acquired taste, I'm sure.

Heavily influenced by Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, Killer Joe is a genuinely twisted Southern Gothic story that's well-acted, well-paced,and incredibly violent. It's also darkly hilarious, and culminates in an unforgettable ending that will have your jaw plummeting to the basement.

The neo-noir purveyor of filth, misogyny, and irreverence that stole my heart. At its core, Killer Joe is like The Big Lebowski, a nihilistic black-comedy that pays very little attention to who it might offend or to creating any sort of moral. However, unlike The Big Lebowski, Killer Joe doesn't have an unaffected, indifferent sort of protagonist. Every character in Killer Joe is highly invested in the plot and concerned with how it will play out.

Raw, fantastic movie! You wanted meat and the movie doesn't bring you to the grocery store, it brings you directly to the butcher. Perfectly follows the evolving of the characters and shows extremely well the human nature and the best motivators out there - fear and money. I don't find the nudity scenes too hard to swallow - on the contrary - they give you that cynic, arrogant taste in you mouth, that you crave.

Incredibly entertaining, McConaughey revels in his role as the title character, Killer Joe. Thomas Haden Church once again proves his chops with a comedic turn, Gina Gershon spends most of her time wearing no underwear, and is very convincing as trailer trash. Juno Temple is magnificent as the twisted Cinderella of the story, and Emile Hirsch is one of the biggest idiots to hit the screen in a long time - that's a compliment by the way. Friedkin defied my expectations - the funniest film i've se

I can't believe that this has been embraced by critics and the public, considering how bitter and sleazy the entire thing is. I'd like to think we've reached a time where people can put their morals aside and enjoy a film for what it is, which is an extremely bleak, darkly comic, quasi-sexual character study that also happens to be incredibly well acted (McConaughey is a revelation). The entire last scene is the tensest thing I've seen since Basterds' prologue. I'll be avoiding KFC for a while.

As a film, KILLER JOE shows its stage roots too often, especially in Tracy Letts' script, which is structured like a play and sounds like one too; William Friedkin's direction doesn't open it up that much either, and the film adds up to not much more than a fable. But what a fable. The acting is superb, especially Matthew McConaughey as the fearsome Joe; the long final scene is a remarkable example of ensemble acting. And it earns its NC-17 rating; the "chicken leg" scene is unforgettable.

This seems like a mutated retread of Fargo or No Country For Old Men, which isn't exactly a bad thing, but it doesn't punch you in the stomach in the way you might want it to. In fact, I didn't feel much of a punch at all. The characters are shown to be so profoundly moronic the entire thing is clearly a farce, and quite funny too, yet I could only be amused for so long before it began to overstay its welcome.

It's certainly a weird movie. Lots of violence mixed with a few twists and loads of black humor. It is definitely a movie that will make you go WTF quite a few times. The script and the performances are really strong, though at times it does show its stage roots. Also, what kind of woman gets a shit-ton of plastic surgery, but doesn't get a bikini wax? I call bullshit.

So there I was, laid back in my seat, enjoying my lightly salted popcorn when... HOLY SHIT ! Why is Gershon's poon staring me right in the face ?! Friedkin brings new meaning to the term subversive entertainment, crafting a rousing game of intimidation, misfired schemes and can of good ol' whoopass. As the credits rolled, I was still sitting there with a stupid grin on my face when it dawned on me how freaking cool this movie is. McConaughey rocks!

Highly enjoyable rednexploitation noir. The style initially seems histrionic - there's a lot of drunken shouting in trailers - but slowly morphs into the darkest black comedy, gleefully delivering each of these despicable characters their comeuppance. The cast are all good, although Hirsch is a bit uneven, and it's very nicely photographed.

I like to think that the fact I enjoyed this film far more than say, The Lady and the Tramp, can be attested to Disney's inherent inability to provide a realistic portrayal of character motive progression, leading the storytellers to oft fall back on tired stereotypes and forced arc resolutions...but it's probably that I'm just as fucked up as Killer Joe was.

Dirty, crazy, immoral and frighteningly hard to look away from. No, I'm not talking about my mom. Well.. her too, but Killer Joe is no slouch either. One of those stories about horrible people doing horrible things to each other, with a crazy finale that left me cackling like a madman and then made me feel terrible about that. The cast is rock solid, with a deliciously unhinged McConaughey as the main draw.

The first half feels a bit soft and too confused over itself, but the rest of the film picks up and continues to get better and better, until the demoniacally powerful and funny (depending on your sense of humour) 'K Fried C' scene that concludes the film on a shock of an ending.

Hirsch is wildly uneven. In all fairness, the fault is probably Friedkin's who seems to revel in the perverse for the hell of it. I've always avoided KFC - and now I can never go (you'll see what I mean). Some of it is plain terrible. Other parts aren't half-bad. McConaughey's totally ruthless villain, though definitely not all too original, isn't without promise. Church (in a funny turn) and Gershon are convincing as extremely cynical trailer trash - not the most flattering compliment, perhaps.

Ridiculously over-the-top in every way. Maybe thats the point - maybe this just isn't my kind of movie. I will say that this is definitely one of McConaughey's greatest roles as he is just pure shock and entertainment here. Some of this is fun but most is just too much to really enjoy.

A viscerally thrilling, dirty, brutish, lurid, sleazy, blackly hilarious piece of nasty pulp fiction. It won't be for everyone by any means, but c'mon, how often do you see a movie these days that actually provokes a genuine reaction? That alone is so refreshing. McConaughey is exhilarating and deserves a Best Actor nomination.

Some well executed black comedy and acting is fantastic but sadly it loses the story in the finale. Quite weirdly, it feels the need to go into completely absurd territory to squeeze more shock out of the audience & handles it so hastily that the satire just turns to farce (kinda like Dr. Strangelove with the pie-fight ending). It's still an uncommonly powerful and nasty piece of work that successfully provokes a physical reaction in its audience. That's something I can easily admire nowadays.

(Viewed in 2012): It wallows in its trailer trash milieu a little too eagerly, but Killer Joe is easily Friedkin's best work in decades, although admittedly that wouldn't be hard. It's an over the top crime film with stereotypically dumb redneck characters and a sardonic tone that borders on misanthropy that is slightly reminiscent of the Coens only far less clever. McConaughey's performance as a fearsome corrupt cop is rightly praised, and the absurdist finale is outrageous and ballsy.

Friedkin and the cast are in top form, and there's depth to the nuts and bolts of the plot, but the film's attitudes are juvenile and blatantly exploitative, using violent sexual abuse to get laughs and serve as sophomoric commentary that's less anything insightful or uniquely American and more just the smug contempt of a city slicker reading the police blotter.

Gross, rank southern-fried chamber piece made fascinating by a terrific cast - McConaughey plows straight up the centre and walks away with the film with at least two scenes of grotesque silliness, but it is Church who may be the true stealth scene stealer, supplying perfect reaction shots and responses every time. Plays with the low-key, demented energy of a crime snowballer without the forward momentum; more successful as an actor's (and director's) exercise than as satisfying drama.

Here is a film that doesn't give a shit what you think of it. It's a film that teaches no lessons, asserts no moral stances, and presents no enviable characters. What it does is paint a picture of greed, desperation and decrepitude, with characters that are all atrocious to some degree. And what an entertaining picture it is. I laughed, I gasped, I squirmed and I needed a shower at the end. Only a talented filmmaker could make greed, desperation and decrepitude this much fun.

Why is it that whenever they make a list of the most modest actresses, Gina Gershon always gets left off? It would have been awesome if they could've given a nod to A Time to Kill by having McConaughey say at the end of the chicken scene, "Now imagine it's dark meat."

Great open, with people as dumb as those from "My Name Is Earl" trying to put together a horrifically dumb and cruel crime. Then we get about 60 minutes of nothing, followed by a 30-minute stagey gratuitous creep-fest that is more "Salo" than thrilling. I'm not offended by this, just bored.

Trying too hard to be everything it's not (interesting character piece, tense thriller, shocking drama), Joe never really threatens to pick up the quality despite having enough in it to keep you curious about what's going to happen next. Its theatre roots may be responsible here, although whether Hirsh & Church can blame their crappy performances on this is up for debate. Thank God for McConaughey - who once again is a clear cut above the rest - and Temple, who's also worth a mention.

For the majority of the film, I wasn't sure if I should laugh or feel uncomfortable. I generally did both because there were a lot of old people sitting behind me. I doubted McConaughey's ability to play Joe, but he deserves an award, and Temple made trailer trash crazy endearing. Going into the theater, I wasn't sure if anything could truly be rated NC-17 in this age, but this film definitely earned it.

Extremely gruesome violence, a great Southern Gothic feel, a fantastic performance by McConaughey (and really everyone else, but him being the most important character in the movie, he really shines).

Dirty dipshits do desperate deeds. This has one amazing sequence, some tension and a whole bunch of bizarre, derivative, exploitive filler.

He simply doesn't have a brain in his head...silly scarecrow.

McConaughey takes on a killer of a character in what seemed like a promising film. With a slow burning plot, repetitive and non atmospheric scenes, it is left to the actors and for the most part they do a good job. The trashy setting and characters did little to help the film develop because there was no rationality to anything any of these characters decided too do. The screenplay was marred by cheesy dialogue and awkward long winded scenes that seemed to lead nowhere.

A white-trash schlockfest that's supposed to make you laugh while you recoil. Sadly, it's dull and inept. The cinematography is strictly amateur hour, the acting is piss-poor, and the writing is worse. Killer Joe thinks it's provocative and shocking.

This world is twisted beyond hope for redemption, and along those lines is quite funny at times. Recommended if you have a strong stomach.

This film singlehandedly restored my faith in the power of film to shock and stimulate the senses and psyche. Gershon and McCounaughey's performances can only be described as bravura.

Puta que pariu. Filme obrigatório dos anos 2010, embora a ambiguidade de meus sentimentos para com ele seja infinita, especialmente porque a misoginia nele é fortemente escancarada.

I have mixed feelings about this. It's building up suspense for quite some time and I was already thinking it was all gonna go down the drain as the story felt like it was lost half time in. But then everything seemed to happen at once and I felt properly 'entertained'. Other good things are McConaughey's performance and some of the dialogue.
