I post to report that I finally saw Killer Joe when it showed up on one of the HBO channels. I really enjoyed it. Its ensemble cast was terrific but I particularly enjoyed Matthew McConaughey as a cop who moonlights as a contract killer. I also enjoyed Juno Temple as a not-quite-all-there young woman who is the kid sister in the most monumentally dysfunctional family I can recall. Nobody is better than McConaughey at portraying flawed but weirdly charming characters. The film is the blackest of black comedies. and nobody is really likable but some of them are so awful, it is fun to see the nasty things that happen to them. Anyway, highly recommend, Killer Joe is a lot of fun. 7 Stars out of 10.
