'The Paperboy': Mystery yarn with lots of sex
It's time to start mulling the year in movies - the awards-season hype machines are gearing up, there are what-did-it-all-mean? pieces to write - and it's impossible not to think about Matthew McConaughey in 2012. In Magic Mike, the actor is the cheeky, G-stringed proprietor of a male revue strip club. In Killer Joe, he's a cop who moonlights as a hit man, bedding a trailer-park Lolita and forcing Gina Gershon to perform fellatio on a chicken bone.
