I knew going in that Cook County was going to be a problem. It talks about raw and explosive, which means it’s going to be violent as the dickens, and it is. It’s about a family of crystal meth cookers, though there really is no plot, and there are so many stupid things in it, including a pedophile rape. I mean, it just makes no sense and is incredibly violent, but wonderfully acted. It’s apparently won a whole bunch of awards, and I can’t imagine why. But this is a mess of a movie, aside from the terrific acting. It’s a shame that the plot couldn’t serve the actors a lot better. One star.
