Before the Devil knows you're dead

Saw this movie yesterday. Slightly overlong, as is the modern trend (bizarrely in a world of diminishing attention spans), but a stunning performance from that old stager Albert Finney who manages to show that other excellent performer Philip Seymour Hoffman that he still has a way to go. Well worth seeing but be warned of monents of extreme violence.

it's great - I agree. Watched in on a plane from Hong Kong, and remembered how much I hate watching movies on planes...or is it being on planes that I hate?
Finney is wonderful - one of my top theatre experiences was watching him in London playing Hamlet, when i was a student about 450 years ago.
