Michael Winterbottom directs this graphically violent thriller based on the novel by Jim Thompson. Casey Affleck stars as Deputy Sheriff Lou Ford, a pillar of the community in the small Texas town of Central City. However, Ford is not quite the upstanding citizen he appears to be, as becomes apparent after he is ordered to evict local prostitute Joyce Lakeland (Jessica Alba) and ends up embroiled in a torrid affair with her. When his fiance Amy (Kate Hudson) becomes suspicious, the consequences are bloody and brutal as the dark secrets of Ford's past are finally brought to light.

Lou's chilling MO is summed up by his visit to a troubled young guy in a police cell, a young man who has guessed Lou's awful secret and wheedlingly asks if the victim "had it coming". Lou replies: "Nobody has it coming. That's why nobody can see it coming." It is a haiku of despair to be compared and contrasted with Gene Hackman's gunfighter in Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven being told that he'd just assaulted an "innocent" man – Hackman snarls: "Innocent? Innocent of what?" Lou Ford is a poison cloud of violence infecting everything around him: this is a film with a carbon-core of horror and pessimism at its heart.
Casey Affleck as Lou Ford is this man. He is a Sherriff's Deputy in a small US town. He is pleasant enough to people and well liked, but inside he is tortured and driven to doing dark deeds. Affleck is excellent as the brooding Ford a likable psychopath who seems more broken than evil. He plays against a couple of female actors in Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson who do a decent job in difficult roles. However, this is Affleck's film firstly and director Michael Winterbottom's secondly. Winterbottom is a controversial and at times brilliant director. I would put `Devil' amongst his best works. He follows the source material well and literally pulls no punches with the violence. Does he go too far? I don't believe so. Seeing violence in a domestic setting is more harrowing perhaps, but I still see far worse in the multitude of violent 18 and increasingly 15 certificate films out there. Context is the key that make this film work.
`Killer' has an almost art house feel to it and this is reflected in both Affleck's unsettling performance and the story itself. You are asked to make some of the conclusions yourself and decide who you think is right or wrong. Ford is charismatic enough that you sometimes like him even though he is evil.Read more ›
I cam to this film with a strong element of caution as the violence to women had been well trailed, and I'm no fan of voyeuristic violence like Saw or strong bleak violence like Wolfs Creek, and violence for violence sake is okay in your average zombie flick, but with real people not so much thanks. But this film is really fantastic. Casey Affleck is a wonderful lead character, he makes his character utterly believable, a sociopath among us, almost invisible to the world, but stalking, violent, and yet strangely charming (and hey sadly sociopaths are often exactly that). His portrayal is absorbing, a career defining moment. Both lead female actors are also extraordinary in their parts, Kate Hudson long suffering and victim but always believable, and Jessica Alba as the much darker warped character that is counters the Casey Affleck role. All three performances of the highest standards, the script is dark but enthralling, oh and god yes it's a bit hard to watch at times, but then again the violence never seems self relishing or self serving.
The plot is dark and weaving, the atmosphere dark and brooding, and the film a total success.
Don't watch if you are easily offended, don't watch on a first date, but do watch if you like great films and great acting.

I was disappointed in this film. For the actors involved I thought this would be better. Not a good story line & not very good acting. Not worth buying.Published 12 months ago by Azrael
