2012 in Film: #91

Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead (2007) | Directed by Sidney Lumet

Grade: B

Thoughts: It is, essentially, an ingeniously put together noir, with incredible visuals and a unique storytelling device. The linearity, or lack thereof, is the film’s draw, as well as its top notch performances and editing. However, it goes on for far too long and risks the audience getting bored. Lumet, however, does exercise his great directing muscle throughout.
