7 THOUGHTS ON “NOVEMBER 9TH IN SELECT THEATERS”

  1. Anonymous

    i hardly ever go to the theater but this film was worth the 11 dollars. i commend the bros. for making a compelling movie. and mr mcarthy for the incredible writing. this is proof that hollywood can make a movie that uses violence to make a point. i dont have the faculties to make a poignant interpretation of the underlying meanings but rest as sure i will be pondering it.

  2. Koby Feldman

    Since you seem to be the top Coen Brothers site, I was hoping you could help me out. I’ve heard rumors that the Coen Brothers are planning on filming A Serious Man in their hometown of St. Louis Park, and are going to be looking for local people to be in the movie. I’m an actor, who has lived in St. Louis Park since I was 14. Do you know anything abotu this? You can e-mail me at KobyNumber9@hotmail.com

  3. Cent

    I’m writing from .Cent Magazine in London where No Country for Old Men will soon be out. To mark the occasion I am putting together a piece on the Coen brothers and as part of this I am looking for fans to write reviews of their favourite Coen movies, tracking the boys career through the voices of the fans. If you want to write for an international art and style magazine then drop me an email on dan@centmagazine.co.uk.

    Thanks,

Joel and Ethan’s next directorial effort is “Inside Llewyn Davis.”  The story of a singer songwriter in the 1960’s New York Folk music scene.   It is loosely based on Dave Van Ronk’s posthumously published memoir The Mayor of MacDougal Street. It stars Oscar Isaac as Llewyn, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman, and F. Murray Abraham.  Here is the first official trailer.

    How do you get to be in a Coen Brothers film. I would be thrilled! I’ve been in several movies in the past, including playing Joe Pesci’s photo double in “JFK.”

  6.  Jay says:

    THIS MOVIE IS TERRIBLE. WOW…

  7.  oliver says:

    I must say that first, I took this film like an “ok one”. Then I thought about what there was of really special in this film and I thought nothing… And that is when I began to think that it is an extraordinary movie because even if there is no big action, this film has a lot of very good moment, especially with the music. So I thought that if a film like that can give me this”feeliing”, it is that for me it’s one of my favorite!!!!! Oscar Isaac’s so good!! And the other actors too!
    Very very cool!!

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

George Clooney stars along with John Turturro, John Goodman, and Holly Hunter. The comedy follows three chaingang escapees on a mystical, musical journey through 1930s Mississippi. Though the plot is based on Homer’s Odyssey, the title refers to the socially conscious film that the Hollywood director in Preston Sturges’s 1941 satire Sullivan’s Travels wants to make.

Barton Fink

The DVD was finally released on May 20th, 2003 buy it below! One of the strangest movies I’ve ever seen. John Goodman is great as the insurance salesman from hell. I’ve discovered a great guide that spells out every little symbolism. Link to it below in the viewer’s guide. Synopsis In 1941, New York intellectual playwrite Barton Fink comes to Hollywood to write a Wallace Beery wrestling picture. Staying in the eerie Hotel Earle, Barton develops severe writer’s block. His neighbor, jovial insurance salesman Charlie Meadows, tries to help, but Barton continues to struggleas a bizarre sequence of events distracts him even further from his task. Did you know? In Miller’s Crossing Turturro met Gabriel Byrne’s charactor at his apartment building called “The Barton Arms.”

Summary

When Waring Hudsucker, head of hugely successful Hudsucker Industries, commits suicide. His board of directors, led by Sidney Mussberger, comes up with a brilliant plan to make a lot of money: appoint a moron to run the company. When the stock falls low enough, Sidney and friends can buy it up for pennies on the dollar, take over the company, and restore its fortunes. They choose idealistic Norville Barnes, who just started in the mail room. Norville is whacky enough to drive any company to ruin, but soon, tough reporter Amy Archer smells a rat and begins an undercover investigation of Hudsucker Industries.
Facts
The Hudsucker Proxy was considered a flop by the mainstream. It cost 25 million to make and only made 3 million here in the US. The reason the budget was so large was because it called for alot of expensive things, duh. Like the sets they were huge and had to be built from scratch. It also had more special effects than any other of their films. The part where Norville jumps off the building that was all done by ILM. It was the largest budget they’ve ever worked with. They’d have to wait for Fargo to enjoy widespread success! Winona Rider said the one movie she really wanted but didn’t get was The Hudsucker Proxy. She adores the Coen’s work and really wanted the part played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Do you think she would’ve been good? I don’t. If you look hard you can see HI in Raising Arizona wearing a Hudsucker Industries work suit.

No Country for Old Men

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is a mesmerizing new thriller from Academy Award®-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen, based on the acclaimed novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning American master, Cormac McCarthy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. Featuring a cast that includes Academy Award®-winner Tommy Lee Jones (THE FUGITIVE, MEN IN BLACK), Josh Brolin (GRINDHOUSE), Academy Award®-nominee Javier Bardem (THE SEA INSIDE), Academy Award®-nominee Woody Harrelson (THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT) and Kelly Macdonald (TRAINSPOTTING), NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is written for the screen and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, produced by Scott Rudin, Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, and executive produced by Robert Graf and Mark Roybal. The story begins when Llewelyn Moss (BROLIN) finds a pickup truck surrounded by a sentry of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law – in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell (JONES) – can contain. As Moss tries to evade his pursuers – in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives (BARDEM) – the film simultaneously strips down the American crime drama and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible, and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines.

The Ladykillers

The Ladykillers marks the Coen Brothers first collaboration with Box Office Giant Tom Hanks. In this remake of the 1955 classic the Coen’s once again stray from their habit of directing only original material. Hanks stars as Goldthwait Higginson Dorr III, Ph.D., a charlatan professor who’s assembled a gang of “experts” for the heist of the century.

Intolerable Cruelty

Miles Massey, a prominent Los Angeles divorce attorney has everything–and in some cases, two of everything. Despite his impressive client list, a formidable win record, the respect of his peers and an ironclad contract (the Massey pre-nup) named after him, he’s reached a crossroads in his life. Sated on success, boredom has set in and he’s looking for new challenges. All that changes when Miles meets his match in the devastating Marylin Rexroth. Marylin is the soon-to-be ex-wife of his client Rex Rexroth, a wealthy real estate developer and habitual philanderer. With the help of hard charging private investigator Gus Petch, she has Rex nailed and is looking forward to the financial independence a successful divorce will bring. But thanks to Miles’ considerable skills, she ends up with nothing. Not to be outdone, Marylin schemes to get even and as part of her plan, quickly marries oil tycoon Howard Doyle. Miles and his unflappable associate, Wrigley, unwittingly dig themselves in deeper and deeper as they go head-to-head with Marylin. Underhanded tactics, deceptions and an undeniable attraction escalate as Marylin and Miles square off in this classic battle of the sexes.

A Coen Brothers Montage

Someone spent a fair amount of time putting together this montage of music and scenes from all the Coen Brothers films up through No Country For Old Men.  Worth a look.
