Very different movie. Don't stop watching it... you will lose where you were. Twisty all around.

I enjoyed this movie and did not see the ending coming. I thought that the actors were excellently cast. Telling the story from different perspectives was an interesting way to do the movie also. It's a story about a man's plan to rob his parents that goes terribly wrong from beginning to end. The opening scene is pretty graphic sexually, so be prepared for that, otherwise great movie. I'd recommend it.

An impressive melodrama. The stock, otherwise dull characters are given depth by the plot. The characters become more disdainful as the bad-to-worse movie continues.

Genius film by 83-yr-old director
Bradley F. Smith | Miami Beach, FL | 11/27/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The pacing, cinema style, storyline, acting, cutting, directing and overall look of this are stunning. At age 83, Lumet ("Dog Day Afternoon" etc) makes a movie like a 30-year-old would. Hoffman and Hawke are perfectly dysfunctional brothers here. Finney, the old pro as the father, is stunning. The plot is just convoluted enough and the tactic of replaying scenes through the now-familiar concept of time-shifting works very well. There's an operatic quality to the film, and of course, a Shakespearean tragedy going on as the family implodes after the brothers' decision to rob their parents' bland suburban jewelry store. I'd overlooked this upon release. Don't make the same mistake now. Watch!"
