McConaughey plays Joe Cooper, a police detective who has a side career as a contract killer will do the job for an upfront fee, that Chris (Emile Hirsch) and Ansel (Thomas Haden Church) can’t pay. Joe offers to take Chris’ younger sister Dottie (Juno Temple) as a “retainer” until the insurance comes through. This action drama is directed by William Friedkin and co-stars Gina Gershon.
Joe is like a black panther.Every movement is deliberate, minimal. Never really exposing light, not out to really define himself, not out to help you understand who he is, not out to ‘let’s keep this conversation rolling.’ Not out to make friends.
