26. March 22, 2010 - Before The Devil Knows You're Dead (2007)

What I really don't get about this movie is why these two brothers thought that it was a good plan to rip off their parents' jewelry store. I get that Phillip Seymour Hoffman's character has some issues with his father, but do they hate both of their parents that much? Couldn't they see that things like that never go smoothly? Also, two brothers sleeping with the same woman is just sleazy. The way the story is told is very interesting - it's actually similar to Atonement, where one scene is shown over and over again but from different points of view. The performances are pretty good and the look of the film is very gritty.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
