Directors' Top 5: Joel and Ethan Coen
Joel and Ethan Coen are amongst my favourite directors working today, right alongside masters like Clint Eastwood and Martin Scorsese. I love their unique style, their sense of tradition whilst still being hugely original, their unmistakable dry sense of humour, and their unassuming way of making movies. They have given us fantastic stories and indelible characters, and are an essential part of modern Hollywood. So after watching their films over and over again, writing lenghty reviews about them and even analysing them in my matura paper (“U.S. 20th Century History Through the Lense of the Coen Brothers”), I feel that it’s time to list my personal favourites from their œuvre.
