"Before the Devil Knows You're Dead"

Yet another phenomenal film that will have to wait a bit longer for a review of substance, but I wanted to get some thoughts out after this morning's screening. It's the sort of film that could have just been a throwaway without the two central - and pitch-perfect - performances from Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke. I have no doubt their game was amped up a number of levels due to the presence of a living legend behind the camera.

More later. So many screenings this week you can likely expect a barrage of reviews in the coming days. LA has become Toronto-lite.
