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.

“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.

" 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 "
