Favourite Coen brothers movie?


#1

Tough one; think I’d be hard pushed to choose between Fargo and No Country for Old Men.


#2

Never been able to pick a favourite. Varies between Miller’s Crossing, Fargo, The Big Lebowski and A Serious Man.


#3

Fargo by at least 7000 miles


#4

Really hard to choose.

Think Fargo is the best blend of all the signature elements (humour, characters, genuine suspense, showing us something we’ve not seen before)


#5

Same here.

Fargo & Lebowski speak for themselves. Miller’s Crossing is a lost classic, the dialogue is just wonderful. And A Serious Man I realise is not quite so obvious in terms of mainstream acceptance but I think is really special.


#6

easily Fargo. Barton Fink at number 2.


#7

Like to pretend it’s Barton fink or blood simple, but it’s actually Miller’s crossing.


#8

Get ready to be angry…

Intolerable Cruelty


#9

Honourable mentions for The Man Who Wasn’t There, No Country for Old Men & True Grit.


#10

Inside Llewyn Davis tbh


#11
  1. Fargo
  2. Blood Simple
  3. Burn After Reading

#12

O brother


#13

Oh this as well. I LOVE that film.


#14


#15

I hate films but this made me feel something which is an achievement. The rest did not.
Blood Simple looks like it was made for a college project but it was sort of fun so I suppose that comes second.


#16

Si Ableman might be their most underrated character. “Larry…we’re going to be fine”.


#17
  1. Fargo
  2. Raising Arizona
  3. O Brother Where Art Thou

#18

True grit


#19

The Big Lebowski. One of my all-time favourite films of anything, mostly because I like the characters.


#20

Miller’s Crossing
Fargo
Barton Fink
