The ideal Coen Brothers companion. A highly informative and enjoyable guide whether you are a die hard fan or a Coen Brothers beginner. Essential reference material with facinating trivia plus critical analysis of all of their films from 'Blood Simple' to 'Intolerable Cruelty'. Insights revealing the storys behind the films plus quotes from the film gurus themselves gives you a true picture of the masters of celluloid and their work. A fully comprehensive guide. Superb.

As a fan of the Coen brothers' movies, this book was simply brilliant. Full of relevant and interesting analysis, it did what all good film books should do: make you want to see the films again. The only downside is that the book (or my edition, at least) only covers up to The Man Who Wasn't There, therefore missing out on the Coens' last two films, Intolerable Cruelty and The Ladykillers. However, considering the disappointment of both these films, maybe it's not such a loss. This book really changed my view of the films (though I still think The Hudsucker Proxy stinks), and has definitely enhanced my enjoyment of them. What better recommendation could there be?
