Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead was one of my favorite films of 2007. However, I have to use the term “favorite” loosely as this film is something you wouldn’t want to relax to while munching on some popcorn. Its brutal and nihilistic depiction of the darkest side of humanity may not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, this is tragic drama at its finest that even William Shakespeare would be proud of.
More importantly, Mr. Philip Seymour Hoffman does it doggy-style with the sexy Marisa Tomei (her presence in the movie almost ungayed me). And even more importantly, we get to see him shirtless and an armpit that I would love to lay my head on.
