It was probably the better choice than making this in colour,... 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)

2018: Films I've Watched in February (24 movies items)

"First Watched 2/17/2018 This film has some solid performances but I think there was a bit of a mis step in Billy Bob Thornton's not that he played it badly but his character's motivations seemed to be nonexistent maybe that was the intention but I personally thought this was the wrong choice. I mean yes in other Coen Brother's pictures we have seen characters that seem to just let the story and characters flow around them and they react to it. The best example I can think of is The Dude from "
