The Killer Inside Me (2010)
My Rating : 4/5 STAR
MovieStudio Quote >> “A very rare country style violence flick which involves class performances and a foolproof plot!”
Based on the legendary novel by pulp writer Jim Thompson, Michael Winterbottom’s THE KILLER INSIDE ME tells the story of a handsome, charming, unassuming small town sheriff’s deputy named Lou Ford (Casey Affleck).
The film takes place in an idyllic West Texas town in the early 1950’s. As a lifelong resident, Ford has difficulty juggling his long-term girlfriend Amy (Kate Hudson), the prostitute named Joyce (Jessica Alba) that he mistakenly falls for,
and the sociopathic tendencies inside him. In Thompson’s savage, bleak, blacker than noir universe nothing is ever what it seems.
