The Coen Brothers

on January 27, 2014

I have come to the conclusion that the Coen Brothers are my favorite writers/directors.  I am always blown away by their films.  I really enjoy them.  I watched one this weekend called The Big Lebowski.  I really enjoyed it.  I have seen several of their movies and this weekend I decided that I’d like to try and watch them all–just add that to the list.  I was surprised when I looked up their filmography that I have already seen quite a few of these.  They direct almost all of the movies that they have written, but there were 5 that they have just written that I have also added to my list.  Here are the movies that they have made.  I have bolded the ones that I have already seen.  I have also requested a couple of books on them from the library because I want to learn more about this awesome duo.

    I have seen none of these.

    We thought “Raising Arizona” was terrible…really strange and I think we gave up half way through it back in the ’80’s.  I have wanted to see “O Brother Where Art Thou”. 

    Love, Mom
