Mar 25, 2013 - who cares how old this is, good work (including vid editing) works at any age. Great moviemash on two film talents.
Feb 6, 2013 - 2:19 never fails to choke me up.
Nov 27, 2012 - What you just described was probably done on purpose, they like to mess with the audiences' expectations that most of the time works...at least for me.
Nov 15, 2012 - This couldn't be more perfect. I've probably watched this video at least forty times in the last four years or so and still find something new to relish in every view. Well done, keen eye, great work.

Raising Arizona (Never saw the whole thing)
Sep 2, 2012 - The Man Who Wasn't There might be my favorite of theirs... and that's saying something
Sep 2, 2012 - "What kind of man are you?"
Jul 30, 2012 - I absolutely love The Big Lebowski and Fargo but Raising Arizona is easily my favorite Coen brothers movie.
Jul 18, 2012 - Fargo = best.
May 31, 2012 - I am going to rewatch all their films, but I was never surprised by anything the first time around, just a lot of slow 'revelations' that made me go 'meh , good, but I've seen it better somewhere else' nothing struck me, or stuck with me about their work. I did like a serious man though, I thought that was interesting. I think their directing style is always the same, which makes their films predictable in a sense. Most narrative changing scenes are always mishandled or not emphasized properly
May 30, 2012 - I have to disagree, they're amazing imo. My favorites and inspiration for film making
May 23, 2012 - I dunno, they have some good films but also a lot of overrated films, and poor films. Their pacing is often all wrong, and they seem to have a big problem with endings, and some things dont gel together, the big lebowski just seems like a series of funny scenes and not a proper film, fargo for all its incredible cinematography and great acting feels anticlimactic, and the sublte slow sight gags grate. They're not bad filmmakers but they're definitely not special. They are over praised.

Feb 26, 2012 - there isn't any order to coen bros best...i'll watch them any day any where....except when fetchin huggies from the barber who writes the book of gods treasure that was lost in the snow by a gangster that was a dude...SHUT THE FUCK UP DONNY!!!!!!!
Feb 7, 2012 - Didn't Crichton write Jurassic Park, the book and the screenplay? As for Casablanca, it was probably four or five different writers--all those Golden Age of Hollywood melodramas had a shitload. But, yeah, I definitely agree with you that the writer is overlooked too often. Cinephiles need the Coens and other great writer-director tandems like Brackett and Wilder, where you can kinda witness the collaboration process!
Feb 3, 2012 - the dude abides...check out my vid entitled Zeargo which features bleak winter landscapes and wind turbines
Jan 15, 2012 - I know, I was addressing someones point about actors not getting enough credit in the film industry. I was merely saying that writers get zero credit amongst general audiences and Hollywood, Im not talking about writer/director sibling teams. Screenwriters are unfortunately the lowest valued people. In fact, 'Barton Fink' illustrates this beautifully.
Jan 14, 2012 - I didn't say they didn't. I'm very aware of their work.
Jan 11, 2012 - How about the writer? The person who, without them, there would be no film to direct, no characters to play. The writer is the most overlooked person in film history, even today. No one knows who wrote casablanca, or jurassic park, do they. Starts with a blank page...........actors get a shit load of attention man.

Dec 1, 2011 - That's a stupid comment. If anything actors get way too much credit.
Nov 28, 2011 - The director is the showrunner; a movie is usually the product of the director. Besides, there is more to a film than acting; writing, cinematography, set design... all these people are trying bring the vision of the director to life. Besides, I don't hear George Clooney and Brad Pitt complaining about the directors getting all the credit from their multimillion dollar mansions.
