Trailer: Killer Joe

William Friedkin's new crime thriller Killer Joe looks to be a winner for both its veteran director and star Matthew McConaughey alike. Friedkin's late-period work has been kinda patchy - though Bug and The Hunted are pretty underrated IMHO - but this flick seems to be giving him some of his best reviews in a while. Likewise McConaughey's performance as a hired killer is getting a lot of praise for the actor who's somewhat been off the radar until he bounced back with The Lincoln Lawyer last year. Killer Joe's rated NC-17 in the US, so I think we'll be in for quite the ride!
Incidentally: Friedkin joined twitter recently:

And Joe just may pop up in the upcoming NZ Film Festival... fingers crossed.
