McConaughey plays Joe, a killer, who is hired by dim witted, redneck Chris, to 'get rid' of his Mother. Chris hopes to get access his mother's life insurance policy, by way of his younger sister Dottie, who is the sole beneficiary.
The whole cast is on form, McConaughey is excellent, though even he is upstaged by Juno Temple who totally steals the show as the odd and 'not quite all there' Dottie.
Killer Joe is a humorous look at what happens when idiots attempt to get rich quick. It kept me intrigued but left me feeling somewhat void of an outcome. Though this was most likely an attempt at a comedic ending, it left me wanting more, or wanting more for these simple minded characters anyway.
Totally worth a look! Oh, by the way, I was going to ad the You Tube trailer in below, but I actually think it totally spoils the film. Check it out here if you must but I recommend stopping half way through!
You can get it on blu-ray, DVD, or instant video at Amazon.com
