The Conqueror

Written by Oscar Millard

Directed by Dick Powell

USA, 1956

How bad a film is Howard Hughes notorious disaster, well it only managed to kill John Wayne is all.  No not Wayne’s career, Wayne himself.  The film was shot on location near St. George, Utah (obviously for its uncanny resemblance to that of northeast Asia), 137 miles from above-ground nuclear weapons testing.  The filmmakers knew about the testing but were assured by the federal government that they caused no hazard.  91 out of the 220 cast and crew were diagnosed with some form of cancer within 15 years of filming and the death toll included the film’s director Dick Powell as well as the leads Pedro Armendáriz, Susan Hayward, Agnes Moorehead and of course The Duke himself.  Producer Hughes so regretted his decision to film near a hazard site that he bought every copy of the film for $12 million and locked »

Killer Joe (Lionsgate) William Friedkin’s film of Tracy Letts’ off-Broadway hit about a family of Texas trailer park cretins (Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Thomas Haden Church, Gina Gershon) who hire a cop-cum-hitman (Matthew McConaughey) to take out their troublesome mother, then foolishly cross him, is a stinging satire, given double-barreled audacity by Friedkin’s sure, and fearless, directorial hand. Earning its Nc-17 rating in spades, “Killer Joe” reminds us that daring, frank material like this is why movies exist in the first place.

Dolby and DTS-hd 5.1 surround.
