The Hudsucker Proxy
Hayseed from the midwest fresh out of college gets an entry level position at a huge company and moved up to the presidency as a way of depressing stocks so that the board can take ownership. Fast talk …

Raising Arizona
I have seen the movie to the point where I have it almost memorized and still laugh like i did when I saw it first. I don't think there is a solid 90 seconds without a laugh out loud moment from first …

Burn After Reading (2008)
If you enjoy sour shaggy dog stories told for the enjoyment of clever, sour people, you might like Burn After Reading...a shaggy dog story if there ever was one. It takes the easy target of Washington's …

Serious Man
This ninth Mike Zoss Production concerns the mounting woes of a hapless, well-meaning physics professor (Michael Stuhlbarg) in late-'60s St. Louis Park, Minnesota. His wife (Sari Lennick) wants to …

Fargo (1996)
MGM has released two DVD editions of Fargo; both are good, and this is the better of the two.      Its main menu's background consists of footage of McDormand, examining the bodies …

No Country for Old Men
While it's very easy to trace comparisons between this film and prior Coen projects, such an exercise seems almost trivial when one considers that this story was adapted from one of Cormac McCarthy's …

No Country for Old Men
This movie is probably the Coens at the height of their moviemaking prowess, even though this isn't my favourite overall of their movies. That title still belongs to The Big Lebowski. However, I do …

Serious Man
I am rather uneducated in the works of the Coens, but the movies I have seen from them have all been damn terrific. This film is no different. This is kind of what I imagine American Beauty would be like, …

The Big Lebowski
Something about The Big Lebowski just seems eerily perfect. I love the Coens filmography I have seen, and I think that The Big Lebowski is definitely their best work thus far. I haven't seen Fargo …

No Country for Old Men
This movie takes patience, and requires interpreting. If you're not interested in having to think through what the movie is trying to say, it will just seem like one damn thing after another.

Finally, in my chronological journey through the Coen Brothers body of work, I come to the latest of their movies (surely not the last, which would be a cause for mourning).  If you have followed …

O Brother, Where Art Thou?
*** out of ****      Homer's "The Odyssey" is like the Shakespearean wonder of epic poems; it's difficult or perhaps even impossible to adapt. But that doesn't …

**** out of ****      With "Fargo", I think that the Coen Brothers have finally perfected their technique. This is not their first masterpiece, although it's the perfect …

The Big Lebowski
**** out of ****      Is it fair to call a film "great" purely based on directorial perfection? Is it really right to consider a cult film a "classic"? I questioned …

**** out of ****      "A Serious Man" proves that the Coen Brothers are some of the best two filmmakers living. They have impressed me in the past and they have disappointed …

This is it, the movie where the Coen's lost subtlety, and hit they're mark.  They're hyper and offbeat characters were in and so was they're wacko brand of humor and while this isn't …

Miller's Crossing
One of the best movies I've seen. It has been in my top 5 movies since I first saw it when it was released. I have never been able to review it because the review becomes a Master's thesis. I recommend …

O Brother, Where Art Thou?
I had to watch it twice to be able to laugh. The first time through everything was just a wee bit too funny to laugh. The second time through I had to pause it at several points. To paraphrase: Its a …

The Ladykillers
The Coen Brothers in a very underwhelming (for them) movie about a silver tougned con man and his gang of criminals to rob a Casino and use an old woman's house as cover. This is not the Coen's best work. …

I just don't understand why anyone ever laughs at this. People whose opinions I trust all call me an idiot, but ... you can't laugh at what ain't funny.

The Coen Brother's super subtextual and symbolic tale of Hollywwod is ready to make all the floating plastic bags dancing in the wind cry in shame and to give the watcher plenty to mull over after watching. …
