Killer Joe, 2011.

Directed by William Friedkin.

Starring Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Gina Gershon and Thomas Haden Church.


When a debt puts a young man's life in danger, he puts a hit out on his evil mother in order to collect on her life insurance.


2012 was a great year for Matthew McConaughey. He had roles in BernieThe Paperboy and a scene stealing performance in Magic Mike. To go along with those movies he also starred in Killer Joe, where he gave a performance that has certainly been overlooked but everyone needs to see.

Killer Joe sees McConaughey as Killer Joe Cooper, a Dallas detective who moonlights as a hitman. Joe is approached by Chris (Emile Hirsch), who owes a lot of money to some very bad people. Chris wants Joe to kill his mother so he can get her $50,000 life insurance policy and pay off his debts. »
