Peter Bradshaw has ranked the films of the Coen Brothers in the guardian

Let’s disagree with him here.

He’s done a dreadful job of doing so.

You are crazy Stickboy.

Burn After Reading as their second worst!? Hudsucker behind O Brother and Intolerable Cruelty!? The Man Who Wasn’t There as their fourth best!?

It’s how I’d rank them if I wanted people to comment/retweet/share with their outrage, tbh.

I dunno, seems fair enough overall.

The only bit I can truly muster the effort to get irked at is the placing of The Man Who Wasn’t There.

Not as bad as i thought it would be.

Fargo should be higher
Burn after reading should be higher

The man who wasnt there should be lower

Still not seen llewyn or hail caesar

Both of those are better than Intolerable Cruelty, but I am in the Intolerable-Cruelty-is-underrated camp.

O, Brother Where Art thou? at 15 behind Hail, Caesar is madness.

I sometimes think that Inside Llewyn Davis is my favourite Coen Brothers.

Actually, yeah, this is a madness.

I got to Oh Brother Where Art Thou? at 15 and just closed the tab. I don’t have room for that much wrongness in my life.

I watched it again not long back and I’d put it top 3 personally. One of the few films I can watch at any time in any mood.
