|Notes ||Master director Sidney Lumet makes a triumpahnt return to the heist genre with this searing portrayal of a family torn apart by by greed and desperation. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke play a pair of brothers each in their own particular kind of financial trouble, who hatch a robbery they believe to be the "perfect crime". |
With a story that unfolds in non-linear fashion, the movie reveals its secrets gradually to demonstrate how a seemingly perfect scheme can come apart at the seams and result in unexpected and morally devastating consequences.
