  1. enkii__bilal's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    All film is boring and lazy, and i expected more of this Coen brothers attempt, but i enjoyed in wonderful role of Billy Bob Thornton as a reclusive barber, and his charismatic look.

  3. Adri Azhari's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    sebuah rencana yang berubah menjadi chaos sepertinya menjadi plot cerita kesukaan Coen Brothers seperti The Big Lebowski, Fargo, dan film ini, The Man Who Wasn't There. Tidak ada penyesalan dalam diri Ed Crane. Ed Crane adalah seorang eksistensialis. Semua hal yang dihadapinya diterima secara afirmatif. Bukan sikap fatalistik, namun Ed Crane berkata YA kepada kehidupan. Ia menerima takdir hidupnya dengan lapang dada

  4. Ethan's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    This is one of the Coen Brothers more low key and underrated films. Thornton gives an excellent performance here as a timid barber who fits all so well into the pantheon of neurotic Coen Brothers characters.

  6. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    Great cinematography by Roger Deakins.

  7. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    This is an interesting character study about a man, who is a sort of spectator. From the distance, he's watching his very own life, in a way, as if he has nothing to do with it, without any personal concern. BBT is splendidly visualizing a man who is emotionless & invisible. A typical Coen movie, nicely shot, with attention to every detail, about the curiosities, absurdities, pecuilarities & uniqueness of life.

  8. brick_bro's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    Another stunning collaboration with Roger Deakins, amounting to a tragic comedy with brilliant pacing. An unforgettable noir melodrama by the masters of bizarre storytelling.

  9. Diogo Pires's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    Excellent neo-noir movie, great homage to the so called Golden Age of Hollywood. Really nice photography, some great shots. Billy Bob is the man for that role.

  10. DenoResandono's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    Like other Coen Brothers movie as usual, this movie contained unique characters, strange humor, and some twists and turns. I think they were very ambitious to make a crazy-plot movie. Unfortunately, it made this movie lacks of focus. Still, it's a good movie...

  11. bryanvmh's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    "Literary" in that there are a lot of words and the words don't explain the images as much as interact with them, but also really funny. Performances are top notch. "Have you ever thought about how hair grows? It's a part of us, but then we just cut it off, and throw it away. I'm going to mix this hair in with the dirt." Also, perfect title.

  12. James Mackin's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    A bondafide treat of a Coen Brothers movie.

  14. Mar J's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

  15. Renton47's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    Existential narratives by their nature leave something lacking - what more can be said about the state of existence than that? This is a polished addition to those narratives, with a series of events conspiring to influence a man who'd sooner be forgotten by history. It's a gorgeous if hollow experience, typically disengaged from the world around it.

  16. Aaken's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    A beautiful modern film noir.

  19. Fré Verguchten's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

  20. Lutka's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

  21. El Biffo's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    Re-watch yesterday proved this to be far superior to the Coen's latest, "Hail, Caesar", which seems garish and bloated compared to the careful austerity of this Black + White neo-Noir. Are the Coen Bros. best days behind them?

  22. João Biscaia's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    The best adapation of The Stranger you weren't quite looking for. With aliens, which somehow makes sense.

  23. Egoisms's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    A bit too laconic for my liking. The end was anti-climactic. A tad too long, especially towards the end. Also, it had no message, no meaning. I've an inkling I'll add a star when I re-watch. Superb cinematography. Characters left when they needed to. An almost total lack of superfluity. Really solid. Just not, in the end, to my taste.

  24. Ghostman's rating of the film The Man Who Wasn't There

    Amazingly sad yet dryly funny. Matter of fact yet surreal. Another Coen masterpiece.
