A good movie

1 year ago at Nov 22 14:01
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

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. I remain unsold on there being more to “get” here than merely a cavalcade of disparate but fascinating ideas crammed together with panache. The Coen Brothers manage to sustain the weirdness and free associative nature of the plot and characters, seemingly held together by black humor and a pervading sense of ” read more

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 make sure I didn't miss anything the first time around but I still ended up with the same feeling. Basically, in my opinion, it must be the least accessible movie made by the Coen brothers so far, even more than 'A Serious Man' which was already terribly obscure. I mean, it is definitely a good movie with an interesting mood and some typical Coen characters but I can't say I was blown away by the w” read more

" To this day, whenever I see John Turturro on screen, no matter what movie he's in, my first thought is "Oh look... it's` Barton Fink." I don't know if that's a testament to his portrayal of this character or if it's because of the very slight chill I felt in my soul leftover by the vague, sense of darkness of this comedy, or if it was just a result of watching for the very first time a movie that has been commonly labeled as retro-surrealism (yep...Fink is one of those type of films that "
