25 From 84: My Favorite Films Of 1984 (25 movies items)

"Simply because this is the beginning of all things Coen. And in the manner of all things Coen, no more explanation is needed from this point on. And yet again, as in all things Coen, this may be b'cuz of either some personal artistic liberty or maybe just b'cuz I really don't have anything to say. Just like all things Coen, it's probably just best to leave you guessing. I recently watched this again, and as a thrilling Neo-Noir made back during the 80's, IMO, it holds up exceptionally today.

"29.3 TV A neo-noir that flees from the basic cliches of the genre. The script is extremely well written, because it's somewhat a confusing story which doesn't hide anything from the viewer. On the contrary, the audience knows more than the film's characters, and this is cleverly used to create a thrilling but tragicomic atmosphere. The basis of everything is straight from classic film noirs: setting, (unlucky) characters and minimalism, for instance, but the outcome is extremely fresh and origi"

"29.3.2014 Coenien esikoinen sattui nyt tulemaan Teemalta, mikä oli varmaankin ihan hyvä asia, koska kuitenkin tämä oli ollut omalla katsomislistalla jo jotain vuosia, eikä minua ole oikein ikinä kiinnostanut tarpeeksi tehdäkseni jotain katsomisen eteen. Ihan kivan likaista Southern-noiria, jossa Dan Hedayaa vituttaa ja M. Emmett Walsh on suunnilleen juuri niin sopiva roolinsa kuin voi kuvitella ja täysin omiaan sen elokuvalle ominaisen fiilikseen luomiseksi. Mies hikoilee jatkuvasti, k"
