Yes. Yes, okay. Let’s see where this goes.
Thus began the renaissance of Bradley Cooper
Not a sequel to I Am Legend.
The opening film for this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival, it would be difficult to claim that William Friedkin’s Killer Joe was an obvious selection. Populated by grim people doing some pretty grim things, it’s a dark drama with both a sexual and violent edge. There’s levity, sure – in fact, there’s quite a lot of laughs – but it’s safe to say this isn’t an easy going crowd pleaser. Yet that’s just what makes it such a brilliant choice. You’ll never look at Matthew McConaughey or southern fried chicken in quite the same light again.
The 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival runs from 20 June to 1 July 2012, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to see the opening night film KILLER JOE, ahead of its UK release, to give away!
