Hoffman and Hawke play 2 brothers. Because they need money, they plan a robbery, that goes wrong... very wrong.

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.

Hoffman’s steely, emotionally locked-up Andy, despite pulling down six figures as a corporate executive, is supporting an expensive drug habit while trying to leave the country with his depre ...

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- December 2016 (33 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 57min. First Viewing It's a Lumet film, so it should go without saying that the cast is superb (Hoffman and Finney, in particular, give the film real weight), but Lumet and the script are quite effective when it comes to building tension, to a truly queasy effect. There are drawbacks though, too many characters and the format doesn't always add much to the preceedings, but Before the Devil Knows You're Dead is a strong crime film about the legacies father's pass on to their sons.
