You try new things. Now Killer Joe, as I said I gave a quote from the movie, called it it will fry your eyeballs off.
Thats a good one.
Ive never seen youve never seen a movie like this.
Why did you take the role of a Dallas police officer whos a sociopath and a contract killer Why
Let me tell you the first time I read it, it disgusted me to the point where I just put it down, didnt want anything to do with it, wanted to go take a hot shower with a steel brush, and clean myself off like a tough weekend in Vegas or something. Theres a woman I work with there are a few people I work with whose opinion I appreciate, who had read it simultaneously. When I spoke to them, they were howling laughing. They were like, You didnt think it was funny I was like, No, what was funny about it They pointed out a few things. They pointed out the writing Tracy Letts writing, the meter. He has a whole different meter of his writing that you have to really sustain, sort of silences that are natural to the characters, but unnatural to someone like you and I having a discussion. And I gave it a couple days to flush it out of my system. I sat back down with an open mind and I guess a different I had my funny bone turned on. And I did find myself chuckling. I found the humor in it. I found the humor in the absurdity and the deliberate provocation in the sort of cheerfulness in the amorality in again, the levitated realism of it. That was understanding Tracy Letts writing. And also after one sit down like were sitting here with the director, William Friedkin one hour with him was the most clear Ive ever heard a director be exactly what he saw this film as being .
This is the man who did The French Connection. He did Exorcist. Hes not a young man. Hes back, huh
I dont know if he ever left, and he sure as hell is a young man, though. He may be up there in years; but like yourself, hes kind of growing in reverse, or never left younger years. As far as energy and intellect and eyes open for new things that are happening in the world and new experiences and seeing opportunities as the first time, Billys right there.
Killer Joe opens on the 27th. How do you think its going to do
27th were going a couple people are going to see this little film called The Dark Knight. A few people will go see that.
Thats the week before.
Thats the week before. Theyll still be seeing it thought that week after. Were going to open. Were going to do it in a traditional platform. Were going to open in a few screens in New York, and then were going to go wider to different markets. Were not going to be 300 screens in every single multiplex. Its not really designed or had the DNA to be that way. But we are wearing NC-17 has a badge. Were not running from NC-17. Were just saying, Oh, hell yeah. Were NC-17. Come get you some real NC-17. Its gotten wonderful world of mouth. Critically speaking and online people are absolutely blown away by it.
There are some scenes in this you have never seen in a movie.
There are some scenes that have never been in a move. There are some that I dont even know where Tracy Letts where his mind goes at 3 a.m. Its got a lot of good shock value, and its done well.
My mother was like when we had kids first, we told her we had her first child. Camila was pregnant. She was like, No, thats out of order.

Where the hell were you when you were supposed to be guarding us. I never heard them, didn't even see them. They apologize and ask you to forgive them for their lack of trust. But only by caution do they remain alive. Tell them not to break that fuse. These people from your village? They are part of the village, but not from it. They are puro Indio and these mountains belong to them.

That was a mighty fine talk you gave the boys back there about sticking together. That Gorch came near killing me. Or me him. Damned old fool like me's not worth taking along! - We started together, we'll end it together. - By God, that's the way I see it. That's the way it's always been with me. Sorry about Deke. I never figured him that way. Say, back there in Starbuck... how did my boy do? Your boy? Crazy Lee? Yes, C.L., Clarence Lee. My daughter's boy. Not too bright, but a good boy. I kill them now? I kill them now? No, you just hold them here. Hold them here. Why didn't you tell me he was your grandson? You had enough things on your mind. Besides, he had to pull his own weight just like the rest of us. I just wanted to make sure he didn't let you down, run, when things got hot. No, he did fine. Just fine.
