Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, from director Sidney Lumet,
is getting plenty of attention this fall as a potential awards
contender, and rightly so: the movie has searing performances from
Albert Finney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ethan Hawke and Marisa Tomei. It also has a couple sex/post-coital scenes between Tomei and the latter two gents, the notability of which could increase the film’s arthouse theatrical gate.
After all, what’s not to love about Tomei — always lip-nibbling cute — topless? What’s that? Shameless? You bet…
