ARE YOU GONNA KILL MY MOMMA?,,
This review is from: Killer Joe [DVD] (DVD)
The Smith family live in a panties optional trailer park. Chris (Emile Hirsch) is a young coke dealer who is in hock for $6,000 for 2 ounces that was fronted to him and apparently stolen by his mom. Okay I know that is too much for 2 oz. and no one fronts drugs, but go with it. His equally slow witted dad (Thomas Haden Church) lives there as well as his step mom (Gina Gershon). To round out the group is their dog Tebow and child-like sister Dottie (Juno Temple) who reminded me of the Hillbilly Ninja (Google it) in one scene.
Chris believes his real mom, who he suspects stole his coke from him, has a $50,000 life insurance policy and names the half witted Dottie as the beneficiary. Their plan is to hire "Killer Joe" (Matthew McConaughey)a Dallas detective who moonlights as a gun for hire. Without the up front money, Joe takes Dottie as a "retainer" to the ire of Chris who perhaps loves his sister a little too much. This provides us with a very erotic scene between Juno and McConaughey.
There of course is a problem with the expected twist, and another twist thrown in just in case you thought you were clever. There are clues that most of us would ignore.
The opening sound track lets you know this is a grindhouse style movie. Plenty of sex, nudity, and bloody violence. Clearly not for everyone. Good accents.
Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, full frontal nudity (Juno Temple, Gina Gershon or body double, uncredited strippers) Blood, violence, killing, violence to women.
