The Coen Brothers: Ranked

by The King of Mediterranean Avenue
Hard list. A lot of gems here, right to the bottom. I feel bad putting A Serious Man so low but I guess I realized I just had a bit more fun with the ones that stand above it. I don’t find True Grit horrible.. but I also didn’t find anything in it to be extremely compelling. The only thing that kind of saved it for me was Bridges as Cogburn, even if he is more or less just an aging, more bad-ass rendition of The Dude. Paris Je T’aime is of course limited to only their short and I do enjoy it, I just have a hard time comparing a five minute short to a feature length.
