If you have not done so already, for heaven's sake go see the new Coen Bros movie as soon as time allows. My time is short at the moment for discussion, and I don't want to spoil any of this altogether astonishing movie, which I believe is the Coens best, which is saying a lot. In a time when American film seems to be getting worse and worse, the Coens keep getting better and better. This is their most fully realized, most deeply felt, most openly profound, most deeply mysterious movie.
Analysis of this complex screenplay will have to wait for the DVD release, but I welcome readers to discuss the movie under the fold. There will be, no doubt, spoilers within, so those who haven't seen it should probably not venture beyond the link.
