This year, they brought us another drama, this time filled with music. After making a run on the festival circuit, Inside Llewyn Davis headed to theaters, and will finally be making its way into homes on March 11.
If you just can't get enough folk music, you'll eat up the trailer for the latest Showtime documentary, Another Day Another Time, which takes viewers into the a sold out concert that paid tribute to the music of the Coen Bros' Inside Llewyn Davis.
Part of the joy of every Coen Bros' feature is the curious cast they compile, and true to form Inside Llewyn Davis is being stocked with intriguing performers. The fact that many of them will sing makes it all the more intoxicating, especially as the Coen's O Brother, Where Art Thou? proved not only to be an extraordinary movie, but also an incredible soundtrack experience. Inside Llewyn Davis seems destined for this same lofty level of greatness
Both projects sound great. The Coens already have cast Oscar Isaac as a musician breaking into New York’s scene in the 1960s. As for Jonze’s feature, it reportedly reunites him with screenwriter Charlie Kaufmann (Adaptation) for a film about global leaders having to meet to discuss “cataclysmic events.”
The Coen brothers have always had a knack for finding the perfect lead actors for their films. From Jeff Bridges in both The Big Lebowski and True Grit to Francis MacDormand in Fargo to John Tuturro in Barton Fink, their selections may sometimes seem weird, but they are always dead on.
The Coens compared their next film to Margot at the Wedding. That’s a 2007 Noah Baumbach movie in which two sisters fight with each other at a wedding. Actually… maybe that could be a horror movie. The Coens probably aren’t doing a wedding movie though.
True Grit has been called “the western you should see if you only see one western every three years”. It’s been hailed as ”enormously entertaining”. Critics and audiences alike fell in love with it, almost from the moment it was released. In his review of the film Roger Ebert describes the audience at a sneak preview he attended as...
The Coen Brothers have been knee-deep in the Western genre for a couple of years now. Ok technically No Country For Old Men isn’t a Western, they’d be the first to say so, but it really feels like one.
When it was first announced that Jeff Bridges would be playing the role of Rooster Cogburn in the Coen brothers' remake of True Grit, it perplexed many people. After all, they had just cast
With the possible exception of Christopher Nolan's Inception, there's not a 2010 movie I'm more excited about than True Grit. It's great enough to look forward to the Coen Brothers taking on a classic Western
Well, pilgrim, you've got yourself just under a year to find yourself an eye patch, a cowboy hat and a six-shooter so you can roll up to the theater in full Rooster Cogburn gear and scare the shit out of anyone headed to see Joel and Ethan Coen's True Grit remake.
The Coen Brothers' new movie A Serious Man is a comedy, of sorts. Actually, judging from the four new clips below, it seems like another one of those awkward movies about how tough it is to be a Hebrew
The earth tones and washed-out colors fit right in with the bleak Midwestern vibe they were going for in the trailer, while the schlumpy guy on the roof suggests that, even if this is Middle America, things are definitely not proceeding as normal
