I watched some of a Coen bros film last night (ladykillers) – lots of sharp observation – really nice camera work. Tarantino/David Lynch maybe. I also have some criticism – I feel somehow obliged to admire the cleverness but I’m not sure about the pacing – I found Barton Fink dragged a little and I fell asleep during the Big Lebowski – I’m allowed. No super heros right!
Also found Revolver interesting – I think it could have been salvaged in the edit – but it was also so obvious that the small time crooks where the prison neighbours – not sure that could have been handled more cleverly.
