ANOTHER FILM TO SEE THIS FALL
Sydney Lumet is a great filmmaker, has been for the better part of 40 years. Sounds like his latest film, BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOUR DEAD, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ethan Hawke, and Marisa Tomei, is a winner based on the reactions it's received at the Toronto Film Festival. A dark story of two brothers and a crime they commit, the film sounds like a return to the mean streets of NYC that Lumet has often depicted in his work.
