Before The Devil Knows You're Dead


How did such a great movie disappear from view as soon as it came out last year?

Tight, compelling and powerful, this story twists and turns into territory best left unexplored for most of us, most of the time.

I mean, that's why they invented movies, isn't it?

To let us go places that, for one reason or another, are off-limits?

Anyhoo, as clifyt is fond of saying... here you get Philip Seymour Hoffman and his seductively alluring voice, Ethan Hawke, Marisa Tomei and Albert Finney careening against one another in a film well worth seeing.

I watched it on DVD last night and only just a moment ago saw it's come out on Blu-ray since I purchased it a few weeks ago.


Did I mention before that I love HD movies on disc?

You never see TV at 1080p — the best available currently on cable or satellite is 1080i — so the only way you'll ever know just how good a picture can be is watching a movie or whatever on disc.

Thanks for the recc. I see it's available fron Netflix on demand (streaming) as well as in the mail. You should try a roku box if you use netflix. I've had one less than a week and really enjoyed having some items from my netflix queue streamed to my tv. Love your website.
