The Best Final Movies Made by a Great Director Now Deceased -Ranked

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

Here are my picks for the Best Final Movies made by a Great Director, Now Deceased. Number one is Sidney Lumet’s second masterpiece (with “Dog Day Afternoon”) “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” from 2007.

Although Marlon Brando, Charles Laughton and Jean Vigo all made only one full length feature film, a debut/final if you will, on the basis of these films alone, they can be rated among the Great Directors.

“The California Dolls” was initially released under the title “…All the Marbles”
