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 …

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 …

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, …

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.

Intolerable Cruelty (Widescreen Edition) (2003)
You know you can have the Coen's make a movie as mediocre as this and have one of the oldest jokes in existence that you can call a mile away and it still made me laugh as two idiots spray each other …

Intolerable Cruelty (Widescreen Edition) (2003)
Slick super lawyer and a cold hearted gold digger start a relationship. Full of the Coen Brother's tics and style and that starts to work against it, not to mention the dated casting but I do like the …

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 …

Bar none the Coen's remain my favorite film makers but the 2000's didn't start out for them that well.      O Brother, was loved by some and panned by others, there was …

**** 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 …

The Man Who Wasn't There (2002)
One of the worst movies I've ever seen, made even worse by the fact that the Coen Brothers did it (yea they make sucky movies but their good ones are brilliant). Tony Shaloob's character partly explains …

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 …

I felt something a little amiss with this movie as it started.  It started okay, not great but then I saw it and it was a harbinger of things to come....      Tom Hanks......   …

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 thought this would work, but like "Burn After Reading" or "Barton Fink" it let me down. The Bros Coen keep getting more self-hating about their Jewish suburban angst; this curdles …

I would call myself a fan of the Coen Brothers. A pretty big fan actually. Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, Fargo and O Brother, Where Art Thou? are among my favourite films of all time, and I'm …

The Coen Bros lately give us characters to care about briefly. Then they die. This is wearing thin. Their satirical schtick feels increasingly bitter rather than entertaining, and this film shows their …

Jewish College Professor has his life coming apart at the seams as he copes with what is supposed to be lifes mysteries and too often not finding the right solutions. Fantastic cast and film.

The Coen brothers are the master of surprises, and Burn After Reading definitely had some surprises I hadn't expected. An amazing cast for great film
