  1. Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    This movie is so wacky and one of the Coen brothers' best. Its middle brow humor makes it super accessible. The car chase sequence is one of the best in comedy history (the dogs!). I have a big crush on Holly Hunter's character as the ex-law officer Ed who is quite the badass. Nicolas Cage is at his best by balancing his crazy with a lot of heart. That's really what makes this movie work: lots of heart.

  3. RumbleFish's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    Spazi deformati e riprese impossibili, esagerazioni con dolcezza di fondo

  4. Miguel Plante's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    Bonne comédie, bien rafraîchissante, même si elle ne sortira pas assez des sentiers battus. Bon scénario, comme toujours chez les Coen, avec des personnages tout aussi intéressants qu'à leur habitude.

  5. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    Excellent combination of faces that could have been taken from a weird comic book strip. Nicolas Cage does one of his finer performances and an ex-boxer is shockingly good as a bounty hunter from hell getting some of the best scenes. To appreciate this film you really need to suspend your belief in order to accept that a female cop marries a multiple offender and idiot and steal a baby out of own selfish reasons.

  6. F/K's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    This is a literal cartoon come to life. Plus the optimism in this film doesn't feel cheap, it feels very human

  7. Shantal Abrego's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    La combinación entre la fotografía y lo absurdo, vuelven a la película una historia dinámica. Lo único que no podía asimilar era a Cage, pero al final resulta bien.

  12. dordairobert's rating of the film Raising Arizona

  13. NUGA's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    It's definitely the Coen Brothers, but i can't help but add a "Jr." at the end. It's ambitious i will give them that, and it shows a lot of what came to be their greatest works, but it's rough around the edges to stand against their improved curriculum.

  14. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    3.5 stars. Cage at his most pretty and likable. The film sometimes comes close to feeling sneering, but Cage is committed and generous enough (as in 'Wild at Heart') that proceedings are mostly kept daffy and feel-good, not cruel. 'Raising Arizona' is goofball; throw-away; but it is also as serious as you allow it to be. What other film has you rooting for two child kidnappers?

  15. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    Hugely inventive but not without flaws. The editing & character motivations are clumsy, while some of the jokes feel sneering & unnecessarily cruel. However the level of ambition is astonishing. Capturing the tone of a Tex Avery cartoon brought to life, the film blurs genre elements with an encyclopedic dexterity; bounding from scenes of screwball comedy to post-apocalyptic nightmare & ending on a vision of heaven.

  16. Cheval Tatin's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    I had no expectations when I sat down in the movie theater last month to watch that film. It was hilarious, the cast was excellent and the pace was perfect.

  17. EdieEmm's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    The Coens exemplify that school of thought that advocates mastering the rules before breaking them. Precision filmmakers, w/ an undeniable grasp on formulas/devices/tropes & how to play w/ them. Sometimes it's delightful. Others, e.g. here, feel manipulative; like I'm being tricked into laughing at stuff I don't find funny, via well constructed set-ups. Still, beautifully executed. Even if I do resent the baby jokes.

  22. mariatavares's rating of the film Raising Arizona

  23. Alp Yenibalcı's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    I wouldn't think that Nicolas Cage was suitable for a Coen character but he killed it. John Goodman is always John Goodman. I would match this movie with Big Lebowski in Coen Brothers filmography, similar series of absurd and dreamy events and background.

  24. Ramzi's rating of the film Raising Arizona

    Delightful film, a real joy to watch. The standard-bearer for all Coen comedies. Nicolas Cage adds so much to the role.
