The Killer Inside Me

Michael Winterbottom (The Claim, 24-Hour Party People) tries his hand at adapting one of the pitch-black pulp novels of Jim Thomspon (who gave us The Grifters and After Dark, My Sweet). Casey Affleck gives it a solid, scary go as psychopathic small-town sheriff Lou Ford, and Winterbottom doesn't shy away from the sadistic violence. (Not at all.) Still, the film doesn't get inside our nasty protagonist's head quite like the book, leaving us with an emotionless cypher as a lead character. 109 minutes R.
