Event Details

TONY PICKS: Time Out New York’s own Keith Uhlich will host two nights of screenings from his Best Movies of 2012 list.

Saturday, December 29th @ 9:30pm

2012 – directed by William Friedkin

William Friedkin hit critical pay dirt with his 2006 adaptation of playwright Tracy Letts’s motel-room freak-out, Bug, the film that let Ashley Judd stretch her performative legs and gave a well-deserved career boost to the great Michael Shannon. Given that success, it’s little surprise that Friedkin, no stranger to turning heads, chose Letts’s muck-wallowing Midwestern potboiler, Killer Joe (1993), as a follow-up. It begins boot-deep in grime, as debt-ridden dope Chris Smith (Emile Hirsch) hatches a plot with trailer-trash dad Ansel (Thomas Haden Church) to murder his mom for a lucrative insurance payout. They enlist the services of Killer Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), an assassin for hire who scoffs at the clueless duo’s several-installments payment plan—until he decides that Chris’s endearingly nutty sister, Dottie (Juno Temple), will be reward enough.

 

102 minutes – Presented on Blu Ray
