Pit, what's your favorite movie by the critically acclaimed and totally amazing Coen Brothers?

Mine would be No Country For Old Men (simply because Anton Chigurh, the antagonist, is one of my favorite characters ever). But I'm also a big fan of Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski.

Fargo is on my "Things I need to see" list.

But I love Fargo and Burn After Reading.

O Brother, Where Art Thou?. Partially because its title is a reference to one of the best movies ever made (cookie if you know the name of that film), partially because George Clooney is in it, and partially because the soundtrack is kickass. But mostly cause the film is amazing.

You REALLY didn't put The Big Lebowski as an option? Really? REALLY!?

Miller's Crossing, closely followed by The Big Lebowski. Barton Fink comes in third.

None of those are on your poll...?

I know it's just my opinion, but the only ones on your list that I think are right up there are Fargo and Blood Simple.

I'd also like to add that the Coens are my favourite directors of all time, their films are astonishing.

Gonna have to go with Lebowski. No Country and A Serious Man are both pretty awesome as well.. Need to see Fargo.

FUCK! I did, but I forgot one and erased it, because I wanted the list in chronological order, and forgot to put it in.

I seriously can't believe I just did that.

Fargo. Aside from the great acting and accents, the cinematography is really interesting - it's just kinda funny lookin', ya know?

Aside from Chigurh, I really didn't care for No Country. I know all the reasons that people liked it, and I think it was well-made, but I just didn't enjoy it.

The Big Lewbowski, closely followed by O Brother, Where Art Thou.

It's a good film. But I think the book is much better.

Disappointing, because I thought if anyone could pull that off it would be the Coen Brothers... but there's just something about the book which they fail to capture in the film.

I have watched Lebowski again and again, and i see something new every time. I love it, definitely a favorite all time film. But i also love No Country for Old Men, and the inbetweener of the two, Fargo. I guess my point is that they have such a broad range in theme and genre that it's too tough to pick.

Fargo is awful. I honestly don't understand why anyone liked that movie, much less why I consistently see so many people raving about it.
