the Coen Brothersgreenspun.com : LUSENET : The Art of Film : One Thread
I had never seen a Coen bros. film till last friday when they showed "Barton Fink" on Bravo, luckily , on a hunch, I threw a tape in the machine and hit record. So it was no surprise that I ran right down to the local googolplex to see there latest offering "OH BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?" and I was not disappointed! This cinematically beautiful screwball comedy could only come from these guys, and I believe only these guys can get such a performance out of George Clooney. I hear the next thing from them will be a black and white film noir about a tough as nails barber, needless to say I'm already there.... What do you guys think?

As far as entertainment goes, I love the Coen brothers' films. I haven't seem their latest yet, but I'm dying to...

I hear Ang Lee (of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) is directing "The Incredible Hulk"... It'll be interesting to see him add his characteristic delicate touch to a movie about a big green superhero.

Yep, "O Brother" is probably one of the best things they've done so far. The script, music, casting & so on were excellent, & fit the `30's setting like a glove. Great visuals, too... these guys come from the same school of filmmaking as Sam Raimi, & it shows. I liked this movie alot.

Speaking of Sam Raimi, he's directing the spider-man movie. All these comic book movies are getting good directors...

Is it "Coen"? I've been calling them "Cohen" all this time. And yes, I too muchly enjoyed Oh Brother, Where Art Thou. People don't have enough fun with the KKK.
