C is for..........Coen
I'm a huge fan of the Coen brothers. The first Coen brother movie I saw was Raising Arizona in 1987. I went with my friend Mike, and I remember thinking that I hadn't seen anything like it. My understanding of tone was certainly minimal at the time, but even I could tell the humor in Raising Arizona was something different. Little did I know, it was the beginning of a lifelong cinematic relationship.
I recently participated in Alex Cavanaugh's Top 10 Movie Countdown Blogfest. 2 Coen movies made my list, and two others were very close. I haven't loved all of their films, and there are a couple that fell completely flat for me, but when the Coens make a movie, I'm there.
Here are my top 5 from the brothers Coen:
5) O Brother, Where Art Thou?
4) No Country for Old Men
2) Raising Arizona
1) The Big Lebowski
Love the Coens? Hate 'em? What's your favorite Coen brother movie?
