A Simple Plan ★★★½

A tense film about family, greed, murder and guilt.
It gets too serious and unbelievable as it goes on. It wants me to take a leap of faith which would've been easier to take if it was a little bit less serious in tone. This film would have been brilliant in the hands of the Coen brothers. It replaces their dark humor with heavy melodrama. It's a good movie no doubt but whenever I will want to rewatch this I'll just remind myself I can rewatch something much better, like Fargo or Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood.
