Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Before The Devil Knows You're Dead [DVD] (DVD)
Nobody in the reviews seam to speak much about the photo, but that's what I liked best. The whole film looks like a polaroid, or maybe like a faded lomo shot, it's absolutely superb. The images of this film are going to stay with me for a very long time.
The actors are fantastic, I liked the second roles in particular, the tirade of the old diamond dealer (what a character!) is unforgettable. The plot is a somewhat classic heist plot, but with an underlying nagging pessimism.
The only film I can compare this film with, is Magnolia. But where Magnolia has a clean photo and an ultimately optimistic (or at least forgiving) world view, this one stays well anchored in the faded dark greens and bleak portraits of human nature.

The film was deliberately shot on hi definition video to give it that look...
