This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is movies about crimes gone wrong. I realized there's a lot of classic movies with this theme that I haven't seen yet. Here's three of my favorite crime fucks up:
1) Reservoir Dogs
What didn't go wrong in this movie? Botched robbery, botched shooting, botched secrets. But that ear, though....that came off with precision.
2) Before The Devil Knows You're Dead
Two brothers that also botch a robbery of their parent's own jewelry store. Phillip Seymour Hoffman is so good in this.
3) No Country for Old Men
The makings of my favorite Coen Brothers movie - The drug deal goes wrong, the man stealing the money from said drug deal doesn't make the wisest decision, and way too many people get shot.
