I should start by saying that I normally hate black and white films, they really annoy me. I think it's because colours really show emotions and give films more character, I just find it more interesting. But in this case I survived watching this whole film, and came to realise that the black and white made this movie more.. mysterious. It was probably the better choice than making this in colour,... read more

A very good movie

Like many other movies directed by the Coen brothers, I have actually seen this one when it came out. Eventually, as usual with those guys, I had to re-watch it again a few years later to actually make up my mind for good about the damned thing. I have noticed that, even though it was very well received when it was released, it is pretty much forgotten nowadays but I think it might actually be one... read more

Description: 1949, Santa Rosa, California. A laconic, chain-smoking barber with fallen arches tells a story of a man trying to escape a humdrum life. It's a tale of suspected adultery, blackmail, foul play, death, Sacramento city slickers, racial slurs, invented war heroics, shaved legs, a gamine piano player, aliens, and Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. Ed Crane cuts hair in his in-law's shop; his wife drinks and may be having an affair with her boss, Big Dave, who has $10,000 to invest in a second department store. Ed gets wind of a chance to make money in dry cleaning. Blackmail and investment are his opportunity to be more than a man ... (more)

" Film noir in glorious black and white done with perfection by the Coens. Especially Billy Bob Thornton's face and voice-over was born for this type of movie and as always the Coens have rich use of interesting faces and character details. While the ending itself is not that all surprising nor is it's twists it is the journey that is worth it's time. An excellent homage. "

"The ironic thing about this movie is that the man in question was there. I know, cuz I saw this movie. And don't worry, I'm not giving anything away by saying that. Let me also add that, as far as the rating for this movie goes, Billy Bob's performance is great, as usual, James Gando is cool, as usual and Scarlett Jo is simply gorgeous, as usual. Over-all, a top notch quality pic from the Bros. Coen. As usual. "
