"I'll show you the life of the mind!"
I saw Barton Fink again this weekend. It's simultaneously one of the most difficult Coen brother's film and one of their best.
Barton Fink is an NYC playwright who gets pulled into writing Hollywood B movies and watches his life devolve into a semi-private purgatory. This movie has as many theories to explain it as it has symbols. Personally, I can never tell if this movie is complete genius or complete trash but I love it.
It's reported that the Coen brothers wrote this movie revolving around writer's block after suffering from writer's block while writing Miller's Crossing.
Fantastic cast, crazy script, great acting. It's definitely worth watching.Comments: Post a Comment
