I'm not one to think that what we're doing to the Earth and the rising global temperatures are 100% mutually exclusive, but regardless, it's safe to say that we're living in a very pivotal time in human history.

This was my third viewing of Killer Joe and I can't figure out why I used to think it was anything less than perfect. What more do you want from a fucked up and trashy dark-comedy?
