Killer Joe

Buy Tickets

Double Feature with BERNIE.

(2011) dir William Friedkin w/Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Thomas Haden Church, Gina Gershon [102 min]
William (French Connection) Friedkin’s return to feature film directing after a 6-year hiatus is this mean little neo-noir. McConaughey plays Joe Cooper, a police detective who moonlights as a contract killer. When Chris (Hirsch), a young drug dealer desperate to cover a debt, hires Joe to kill his mother for her insurance policy, Joe takes a liking to Chris’ sister, Dottie (Temple) and requests her company as a “retainer.” When the whole thing predictably goes south, Joe reveals just how ruthless – and terrifying – he really is.
