Stone's south-of-the-border drug romp is dumbed-down dud.
Coming as it did after a string of slightly tonier projects—the series of 'State of the Union" pictures that began with World Trade Center (2006), continued through W. (2008), and ended, two years later, with that ill-advised Wall Street sequel...
A very funny depiction of very bad deeds.
SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL: Killer Joe is rude, crude, very violent and a lot of fun. It’s also nasty. Frankly, some of the best bits here are, well, the 'dirty’ parts. Line for line this film, based on a hit play by Tracy Letts, is hilarious and savage.
