Critic Reviews of "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead"The New RepublicSeptember 18, 2008
The movie's title comes from the Irish toast, 'May you be in Heaven half an hour before the Devil knows you're dead.' Unfortunately, everyone in the film is running about 35 minutes late.Time OutJanuary 11, 2008
Superior fare, packed with insight and suspense.Film.comNovember 28, 2007
As the Shadow used to say, the weed of crime bears bitter fruit, and Lumet has made a delicious pie out of it.Dallas Morning NewsNovember 16, 2007
You feel Before the Devil Knows You're Dead more than you watch it. And the feeling is far from warm and fuzzy.Toronto StarNovember 16, 2007
At a time when family movies are usurped by fantasies of sentimental feelgood, Lumet's latest -- the mangled-heist melodrama Before the Devil Knows You're Dead -- delivers a swift kick straight to the jewels.Globe and MailNovember 16, 2007
The problem is not that the director is working but that his latest film is working too hard. Way too hard â" this thing is melodrama running a marathon.Stop SmilingMay 16, 2016
The problem is that we get no real sense of what these characters were like before everything went haywire, so little is believably at stake.The Stranger (Seattle, WA)September 11, 2010
( ... ) so perversely fun that a few false notes-a pushy score and certain moments that veer toward a cheaper kind of melodrama-don't nag as much as they might have.Matt's Movie ReviewsJuly 06, 2010
Before the Devil Knows You're Dead is an immensely disturbing and tragic morality tale, which focuses on the consequences and repercussions of a sinister act driven by greed.CinePassionAugust 27, 2009
Ferociously pleasurableUGOAugust 14, 2009
Suspense and action would be enough to seal this film, but the feeling of dread, that under different circumstances this could be us, makes this a heist picture for the ages.Times-PicayuneAugust 14, 2009
Lumet proves he's still a master storyteller, and Philip Seymour Hoffman is fantastic.
