unoriginal ending

6 years, 3 months ago at May 11 11:09
Hoffman and Hawke play 2 brothers. Because they need money, they plan a robbery, that goes wrong... very wrong.

Hoffman and Hawke's performances are quite good, so is Marisa Tomei's and the other supportive actors'.
The script isn't that original, you can predict what will happen, and it's really too bad, because there were many possibilities, and unfortunately the scriptwrit... read more

Hard to talk about this movie but is a must watch. Very interesting and with amazing performances. I was expecting less but wow, very good. I'm still shocked.

Great performances, decent movie

Likes: The performances by Ethan Hawke, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman were awesome. Theys should have gotten a nomination for them. The story was very good. Michael Shannon had a really good part.

Dislikes: It got old fast. By this I mean it was just the samething over and over again. Now I know it was the style of the film, to show what a certain person was doing at a certain time. ... read more

"10.7.2014 Pidin siitä millaisen kunnon toivottomuuden tunteen tämä saa aikaan kuvatessaan hahmojen reagointia pahojen tilanteiden alla ja näiden tilanteiden vain kärjistyessä entisestään. Hoffmanin hahmo alleviivaa käyttäytymisellä tätä ja elokuvan "paska valuu vain alaspäin" tunnelmia toimivalla otteella, sillä hahmo tuntuu etenkin loppuminuuteilla vain hakemalla hakevan omaa tuhoaan. Millään ei ole enää mitään väliä ja kunnolla vaan virran mukaan. Albert Finneyn jutut e"

My movie year 2014 (478 movies items)

"24.5. (Teatteri) Varsin ankea ja tyly elokuva, jonka aikana olin yskiä keuhkoni pellolle. Aloitus on muuten ehkä tyylipuhtainta mielenkiinnon naulitsijaa aikoihin, vaikka Philip Seymour Hoffmanin lässytyksestä on vaikea saada mitään selvää. Kerrankin ruotsitekstit helpottivat englanninkielisen elokuvan tajuamista."

“A little slow-moving, but was interesting to see how some small things slowly escalated to bigger things. Acting was good all-around, plot was realistic but could have been paced a little faster. Not a typical entertaining thriller for sure, but still one worth the watch.” read more

"First Viewing Viewed: January 15th Plot: When two brothers organize the robbery of their parents' jewelry store the job goes horribly wrong, triggering a series of events that sends them, their father and one brother's wife hurtling towards a shattering climax. Now this is how you make a proper thriller. Before the Devil Knows You're Dead wound up being the final film to be directed by Sidney Lumet, a filmmaking mainstay who debuted with the exceptional 12 Angry Men in the 1950s before creat"
