How can you not love this movie? I mean, it's the Cohen Brothers, and they are genius, in my opinion.

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely check it again whenever I have the opportunity. The point is that I always had some rather mixed feelings about this flick (like most of the movies directed by the Coen brothers as a matter of fact). And, apparently, I’m not the only one feeling this way. Indeed, on one hand, it is nowadays regarded as a cult-clas... read more

Joel & Ethan Coen Films - Ranked (18 movies items)

" Raising Arizona might possibly be something of an acquired taste. I know that I deeply appreciated it more now than when I originally saw it. The wacky jokes, bizarre characters and quirky situations may not land well with everyone, but I found it to be very entertaining this time around. The chase sequence is a masterpiece when it comes to comedy and Holly Hunter is a darling. "
