There have been endless debates about "The Passion of the Christ," which was shut out of contention for Oscar's biggest honors. But one striking aspect of the film has stood apart from controversy: veteran cinematographer Caleb Deschanel's work on "Passion's" look and feel, which earns him his fifth Oscar nod and one of the three nominations the film has received. Deschanel has worked on such films as "Being There," "The Black Stallion," "The Right Stuff," and "The Natural."

Out of the muck and mire of human depravity that is "Killer Joe," something magnificent comes: a killer performance by Matthew McConaughey. The actor has already had a stellar year playing lowlifes. But his dirty Dallas detective Joe Cooper, who has a lucrative sideline as a hitman, is arguably the best of the worst, out-sleazing his East Texas prosecutor in "Bernie" and out-stripping his Xquisite club manager in "Magic Mike. " Never has the actor's molasses drawl been more lethal.

Charlie Lang (Nicolas Cage) is a New York cop with an overdose of decency. He's sweet and affable and he believes in keeping his word--he's like Forrest Gump with an elevated IQ. When Charlie finds himself in a diner short of a tip, he makes a pie-in-the-sky promise to his waitress (Bridget Fonda) to give her half of any possible winnings on his just-purchased lottery ticket.
