film - Before The Devil Knows You're Dead


Unsettling drama with virtually no likable characters, but an interesting story that unfolds from flashbacks.

Two brothers decide to rob their parents' jewelry store, fence the goods and have a "victimless crime" as the insurance money would cover the losses.

There's almost no one to root for. If some plot details were changed, this could have been filmed as Guy Ritchie movie. Superb acting on the part of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Albert Finney.

This was the best-rated new film of the week and while it's not a feel-good film, it's a good one.
