"...A fully realized, cohesive, and -- the real surprise -- completely 'serious' homage to the Hollywood genre, perhaps the best neo-noir since THE TWO JAKES..." Film Comment "...One of [the Coen brothers's] most haunting and rewarding works..."Movieline's Hollywood Life "...It's shot in clean, crisp black and white, it's elegant compositions masterfully framed and lit....The Coens are masters of the offbeat and bizarre..." Sight and Sound "...It's probable that most filmmakers love making movies, but few of them express this love with such voracious, crazy ardor....THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE moves with the stately grace of the Beethoven that decorates the soundtrack..." New York Times "...The remarkable Thornton never hits a false note..."USA Today "...Succulently retro, vintage-Hollywood-goes-bizarro film noir..." Entertainment Weekly "...So assured and perceptive in it's style, it's like a voluptuous feast..." Chicago Sun-Times51.11912

"...Spare, resonant and astonishingly beautiful....A jewel of a gangster film..." Rolling Stone "...MILLER'S CROSSING assumes a precision of correspondence between content and form which is all to rare in the cinema today..." Sight and Sound "...The film is a primer in screen virtuosity....Both film and actors somehow manage to seem realistic and stylized at the same time..." -- 4 out of 4 stars USA Today "...MILLER'S CROSSING is a stately and respectful genre treatise....Joel and Ethan Coen are meticulous filmmakers....It's filled with a great deal of beauty, skill, and a kind of ironic truth..." Film Comment "...[An] elegiac, stylish gangster movie....It has somber, poetic images and an especially fine musical score that braids its Irish themes together hauntingly..." Los Angeles Times "...This is the most elegant, most forceful and -- arguably -- simply the best film the Coen brothers have yet produced..." Total Film51.07272

"...Partly hilarious, partly horrific, totally mesmerizing..." Rolling Stone "...The Coens share with Lynch an ability to find brilliant aural and tactile devices to suggest a world gone awry..." Sight and Sound "...Surreal and sometimes sublime..." USA Today "...[The Coens] are filmmakers of considerable ability. Their scripts are invariably clever and bemused, with a wised-up quality all their own..."Los Angeles Times51.07272

"...Clooney turns in a terrific comic performance that stirs memories of Cary Grant..." Total Film "...In the Coen manner, the film brims with crafty character turns..." Rolling Stone "...An intelligent, modern screwball comedy, a minor classic on the order of competent, fast-talking curve balls about deception and greed like Mitchell Liesen's EASY LIVING and Billy Wilder's MAJOR AND THE MINOR..." New York Times "...CRUELTY stands up fine as Friday-night fun..." Sight and Sound "INTOLERABLE CRUELTY is a deliciously good time, enhanced by the big-screen charisma of its two stars..." USA Today "...With George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones working together beautifully..." Los Angeles Times "[A] quick-witted comedy....Catherin Zeta-Jones is Marilyn, a gorgeous schemer who wants to take her filthy-rich husband -- and Miles's woefully foolish client -- to the cleaners."Wall Street Journal50.88713

5 stars out of 5 -- "LEBOWSKI sees the Coens embark on a delirious joyride through the great Sin City itself, executing some audacious hair-pin turns through the conventions of noir along the way."Uncut "...The Coen brothers, those far-out FARGO guys, cover everything with eye-popping panache..." 3 1/2 out of 4 StarsUSA Today "...Joel and Ethan Coen have crafted another shrewdly ironic valentine to Americana with this hilarious tale..."Premiere "...Genial....It's weirdly engaging, like its hero..."Chicago Sun-Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat makes the Coens' seventh film so inexhaustibly re-watchable is its oddball range of characters so gonzo, so heroically grotesque as to be the stuff of the greatest stoner-comic book never written."Total Film "...The range of acting turns is rich....Best of all, in a memorably unctuous cameo, is Philip Seymour Hoffman...the best character-actor find in years..."Sight and Sound "...Mr. Bridges finds a role so fit for him that he seems never to have been anywhere else. Watch this performance to see shambling executed with nonchalant grace and a seemingly out-to-lunch character played with fine comic flair..."New York Times "...The Coens are able to create wickedly funny eccentrics and possess the ability to energize certain actors to inhabit them completely..."Los Angeles Times "...A masterpiece of anti-storytelling..."Entertainment Weekly Ranked #7 in Rolling Stone's "Top 25 DVDs Of 2005' -- "[T]he prize in this Coen Brothers 1998 goodie is still Jeff Bridges..."Rolling Stone "Joel and Ethan Coen's now-classic comedy is an absurdist neonoir film about mistaken identity....[A] big sweet teddy bear of an entertainment..."Wall Street Journal50.88713

"The Coens direct TRUE GRIT with a light touch....It's simultaneously rollicking and grave, alternating moments of fine dark humor with startling violence..." -- Grade: A-A.V. Club "[A]lternately somber, funny, elegiac and steadfastly if unconventionally moral....The Coens use the landscape beautifully, capturing the majesty of ripply baptismal rivers and craggy, charred-bone trees alike."Movieline "The best of the new TRUE GRIT comes from the actors who bring their vivid characters to life....With typically impeccable dusty-Western cinematography by Roger Deakins..." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly "Joel Coen and Ethan Coen fill the film with self-conscious good humor -- hey, it's the Coen brothers -- and the charmingly old-fashioned locutions of the Charles Portis novel."Wall Street Journal 3.5 star out of 4 -- "The casting is always inspired and exact. The cinematography by Roger Deakins reminds us of the glory that was, and can still be, the Western."Chicago Sun-Times 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]ll credit to Damon, who plays down the Texan's vanity and braggadocio, leaving just enough of it in evidence to be funny without being off-putting."Total Film Included in USA Today's "10 Best Films Of 2010" -- "The Coen brothers fire on all cylinders with this remake of the 1969 Western..."USA Today "[O]ne of their most broadly entertaining films yet....[The Coen brothers] worked hard, and successfully, at serving the buoyant novel as well as being true to their own black comic brio."Los Angeles Times "[B]oth musically and visually, TRUE GRIT is a parable about good and evil. Only here, the lines between the two are so blurred as to be indistinguishable, making this a true picture of how the West was won or -- depending on your view -- lost."New York Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "TRUE GRIT has sweep and scope and entertainment value to burn..."Washington Post "Joel and Ethan Coen have pulled off an impressive feat: repurposing a classic film with their idiosyncratic blend of dark, deadpan humor and palpable suspense..."USA Today 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he Coens have crafted a vastly entertaining Wild West show that is memorable in every particular."Rolling Stone "[T]he brothers clearly enjoy adopting Portis's dry plainspoken idiom....Bridges sounds as if he's talking through his collar, in a vocal performance that's entertaining no matter what he's saying..."Film Comment 5 stars out of 5 -- "TRUE GRIT is really about Jeff Bridges, giving another peerless performance for the Coens....Certainly with TRUE GRIT, he's done great work in a great film."Uncut "[T]he production, by their regular team, is formally superb....The Coens inject something of its macabre fairytale timbre, retaining the book's grotesque touches and adding more."Sight and Sound0.225033

"...An achingly funny and corrupt dark comedy....Mr. Zwigoff has a taste for finding the dramatic power of self-loathing and making it entertainment..." New York Times "...It unapologetically exults in its characters' glorious imperfection..." Los Angeles Times "...Billy Bob Thornton is sinfully funny....As slime personified, he's sublime..." Rolling Stone "There are 50 times more laughs here than in THE CAT IN THE HAT." USA Today "BAD SANTA is a demented, twisted, unreasonably funny work of comic kamikaze style."Chicago Sun-Times "[T]ransgressive-comedy heaven." Movieline's Hollywood Life "BAD SANTA is a towering achievement: a dark, profane comedy about everything that's both right and wrong with the season of goodwill. Essential, dark-hearted Yuletide viewing for misanthropes everywhere." Uncut0.164592
