A good movie

Even though this movie seems to be overlooked nowadays, it was another big critical success for the Coen brothers. Indeed, they even managed to win the Golden Palm at the Cannes film festival.  Well, to be honest, even though I thought it was not bad, I actually always had some mixed feelings about the damned thing. In fact, I even watched it a couple of times to make up my mind for good and to m... read more

Barton Fink

What exactly is Barton Fink about, really? What do all of these vague symbols and political allusions add up to, and does the deeper “truth” to them really matter? Barton Fink seems in deeply enamored with its own ambiguities, both in narrative architecture and thematically.   It’s about the mental and emotional unraveling of a blowhard writer lacking in any discernible talent but not la... read more

Joel & Ethan Coen Films - Ranked (17 movies items)

" A film I might need to see again. Saw it at a very young age, and while I admired its cleverness, I was never overly fascinated or interested by it. My matured age might change that, if I were to revisit it."

Barton Fink

“What exactly is Barton Fink about, really? What do all of these vague symbols and political allusions add up to, and does the deeper “truth” to them really matter? Barton Fink seems in deeply enamored with its own ambiguities, both in narrative architecture and thematically.   It’s about the mental and emotional unraveling of a blowhard writer lacking in any discernible talent but not lacking in any smug self-satisfaction an ego with some references to fascism thrown in.
