A Simple Plan is lean, elegant, and emotionally complex - a marvel of backwoods classicism.

Perfect capers gone horribly, inexorably awry have always kept audiences squirming. But just when we think we've seen it all, Raimi offers a few new wrinkles.

Raimi takes the old story about dishonour among thieves and renders it fresh through the calm, cool, steady assurance of the telling.

As straightforward in narrative as it is gut-wrenching in effect, A Simple Plan is a sort of slow-motion skid down an icy blacktop- it's a movie you watch with a mounting sense of dread.
