My top Coen Brothers films in progress:
Burn After Reading / Coen Brothers / 2008 / United States / Color
George Clooney, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, and Tilda Swinton are terrific in this comedic masterpiece from the Coen Brothers. “Burn After Reading” is a “Fargo-esque” film
- the brain of the picture. The disaster and fight for survival plays a big role because that’s how the “crazy story” of this film started. Laugh out loud film. This is the Coen Brothers at their best!
Tuileries / Coen Brothers / 2006 / France, Switzerland / Color
Steve Buscemi could not have been any better to play this character. He minimizes the large problem of his situation by just floating with the flow of his position. He becomes attached in the collision between a young couple after committing an uncomfortable progress towards the already difficult problem. The Coen brothers really did a great job on this film. Full of energy and warmheartedness.
No Country For Old Men / Coen Brothers / 2007 / United States / Color
No Country For Old Men by the Coen brothers is a classic high quality movie that ranks with the best. The camera shots are well photographed by Roger Deakins, making the film free of dirt and free of roughness. Great choice for not putting any sound or music in the background because it served very well, it sounded pure, forceful, and simple. You can even hear the wind slashing through the empty desert top. Coen brothers made one of the most talked about villains in the history of the film, Antoine Chigur, played by the notoriously great actor, Javier Bardem. Also one of my favorite actors, Josh Brolin, played the most important character in the movie, as he connect the audience with other characters. The performances in this film are superb. Clean film with no dust or anything that can get your mind off the absorbing storyline. Give full credit to Cormac McCarthy of course, for giving us this beautiful film. This movie is not for everyone, but if you’re looking for a great quality film for your collection, No Country For Old Men should definitely be on there. Sharp dialogues, crisp pictures, and neat performances.
