Screening Log. Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (Sidney Lumet) (2007)

A film full of frustration, some of it intentional (for the story) but a lot of it accidental (for the audience). Hoffman's performance is the best thing in the film (aside from Tomei's beauty, and extremely sexy funeral dress), but the film feels largely empty and pointlessness. That's not to say that its an overly bad movie, but in the end it will probably be just another film that I will have forgotten about.
