I'll start the ball rolling...
I'm a huge Coen brothers fan....I've seen 11 out of the 17 big screen movies they've made to date.
Tonight I went back in time to 1991, their 5th film...Barton Fink
, which I hadn't seen before.
Many funny moments and crazy characters...as is their specialty. And a sad and confusing ending, which can be pretty standard for them as well.
On one hand I wonder how they got the interest to continue getting funding...on the other hand I totally get their unusual style.
I give Barton Fink
a 6 out of 10...not one of their best, but captivating and with interesting insights into their style.
And cause I'm pissed, and I think their genius should be appreciated...
Here's a list of their films and my scores. I highly recommend you check out the 7+ movies at least. (A - ? denotes I haven't seen it.) If you get my twisted sense of humour, you might enjoy these flicks.
