Len Fearnside’s review:
It appears the McConaissance is upon us. He is a force of nature here and every moment he is on screen as Joe, he is absolutely riveting. Of course the same can be said for Juno Temple, who plays the young and simple Dottie so well, you can't help but want to wrap her up in a blanket and take her away from all of this dirt and death. Those two alone make for fascinating interplay, but the film does not stop there and we get amazing work from the rest of the cast too (Thomas Hayden Church is particularly fantastic and hilarious as the dimwitted Ansel). The storyline itself is nothing particularly new, but it is done so well, that it feels fresh and exciting. It's dark, disturbing, and very funny; after two great movies in a row, with Bug and Killer Joe, I sure as hell hope Friedkin and Letts collaborate again soon.
