Killer Joe (REVIEW)

William Friedkin’s accomplished films gleefully stomp on and dance around the limits of representation. His single-minded, questionably scrupled, mysoginist, white male crusaders in “The French Connection” and “To Live and Die in L.A.” represent some of the quintessential stuff of contemporary action heroes. “Cruising” still inspires its lion’s share of debate on whether the film should be regarded as homophobic fear mongering or as a once prophetic glimpse into the potential psychological consequences of violence against the male gay community.

Retro Trailer: "Frailty" (2001)

Typically, I try to avoid movies starring Matthew McConaughey, which is probably why I waited until just a few months ago to watch "Frailty." I must admit, I'm sorry I waited so long. "Frailty" is a dark thriller that offers a fresh plot, solid acting by all (including the two child actors who were incredible), and plenty of twists and turns along the way. Bill Paxton's directorial debut centers around the relationship between two young brothers, Fenton and Adam, and their father, who believes he has been ordered by God to kill demons.
