Coming Soon: The Killer Inside Me

Director: Michael Winterbottom
Written by John Curran. Based on the book by Jim Thompson.
Starring Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, Simon Baker
Lou Ford is the charming deputy sheriff in Nowheresville, Texas. Beneath that Mayberry P.F.D. exterior, however, lurks the mind of a psychopath. Stanley Kubrick said of Thompson’s novel that it was “Probably the most chilling and believable first-person story of a criminally warped mind I have ever encountered.”
Noel Murray: “The substance of Thompson’s work survives—in particular the sticky psychological and genealogical origins of Affleck’s psychosis, and his fear of being looked at as an outsider in his hometown—but too often the movie feels like a bumpy, circular road through the novel’s plot points, without enough time spent taking in the scenery.”
