And it's a well-crafted, well-acted, intriguing thriller about two brothers in dire financial straits who hatch a plan to rob their parents' jewelry store. The story unfolds in various flashbacks from different perspectives as things go very, very bad. This movie is very, very mean--not many redeemable characters, if there are any at all.
But I'd rather talk about Marisa Tomei getting naked. I just wonder what happened to her since 1998 when she used a very obvious body double in "The Slums of Beverly Hills". Now she opens the movie by getting banged doggy-style by Philip Seymour Hoffman (who should not be getting naked on screen--shudder). Come to think of it, she got topless in "Factotum" two years ago, too. Anyway, I have no comment, just feel free to speculate away.
