Before the Devil Knows You're Dead Reviews

Sandra Hall
Sydney Morning Herald

The film's director, Sidney Lumet, is 83 but he hasn't lost his feel for bleak New York stories programmed to end in tears.

At the Movies (Australia)

Conceptually bold and unnervingly suspenseful, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead is one of the best films Lumet has directed in a very long and at times uneven career.

Hoffman's brilliant in this nailbiting thriller and character study.

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead is a sleeker, slimmer film than Lumet's done in some time, but it is quite possibly his strongest work in decades.

February 28, 2008

Even though the story plays out nonlinearly, the intensity surges up a straight slope. This would seem impossible if not for the masterful screenplay by first-timer Kelly Masterson and deft direction by Sidney Lumet.

Ethan Hawke, Marisa Tomei and Albert Finney are doing some really fascinating, nuanced work, and it's all just slightly diluted by Sidney Lumet's formal agitations.

Cinema Sight

Marked by hammy performances and outlandish revelations, Sidney Lumet's film can barely hold a candle to his greatest work.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

In its relentless and uncompromising nastiness, cold-sweat tension and fear, its serious engagement with the idea of evil and sin and finally in the way it evolves, persuasively, into a kind of contemporary family tragedy, this is in a different league.

If you want a quality crime caper, then this is for you.

Daily Mirror [UK]

Hoffman's reliably superb while Albert Finney, as the lads' father, is as good as he's ever been.

Full Review Source: Daily Mirror [UK] | Original Score: 4/5

January 11, 2008

A crime melodrama that takes risks with characterisation and narrative structure, but ends up as awkward, indulgent and hard to like as its main protagonists.

Full Review Source: Film4 | Original Score: 2.5/5

Ceri Thomas
Total Film

Lumet doesn't damn himself, but it's hardly cinema heaven. Hoffman, Hawke and Finney claw strong moments out of an underwhelming script, but for some the only thing that'll stick is Marisa Tomei with her kit off.

Tim Evans
Sky Movies

Veteran director Sidney Lumet (Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon) shows he's no slouch at 83 when it comes to crafting first-class thrillers with a pitch black core.

Empire Magazine

Bleak, brutal and quite possibly brilliant, this is a triumphant return to form for Lumet and further proof that Hoffman is on an incredible winning streak.

Impressively directed by Sidney Lumet (he's 83, you know), this is a thoroughly gripping thriller with a strong script and terrific performances from its two leads.

Film Threat

There may be very little that is nice about the people in this ferocious family film from Lumet but it's awfully nice to see him pull it off this late in the game.
