Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead


Dir. Sidney Lumet. 2007, 117 mins. 35mm. With Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ethan Hawke, Marisa Tomei. Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Andy, an overextended broker who lures his younger brother, Hank (Ethan Hawke) into a larcenous scheme: the pair will rob a suburban mom-and-pop jewelry store that appears to be the quintessential easy target. The problem is the store owners are Andy and Hank’s actual mom and pop. The great director Sidney Lumet’s final film is a bracing, energetic modern-day noir.
