The Killer Inside Me stirs more debate


As the already controversial The Killer Inside Me makes its bloody way toward a wide release sometime later this year, conversation about it has been building. Here's an interesting overview of the debate, including input from the stars of the film, by Salon writer Andrew O'Hehir.

And, of course, I've been writing about this movie for a while now: I talked about it last month, and before that in November of 2009. I started way back in December of 2008. I'd like to claim prescience on this topic, but anyone who'd read Jim Thompson's novel could have told you that a movie version would be tough stuff.
