Cook County

JOY REVIEW

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.
