Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead – 2007 – Sidney Lumet

Families can save you or break you. Lumet’s classic (in every sense of the word) about two dysfunctional brothers, played brilliantly by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke, who go to extraordinary and violent lengths to rescue their sorry-ass lives by robbing from their parents. A Shakespearean masterpiece. JJ
