5.0 out of 5 stars Coen Masterwork, 2 Mar 2012
This review is from: Barton Fink [DVD] (DVD)
The Coen brother's comedy/thriller Barton Fink is an edgy surrealist film brimming over with humour that is both dark and bizarre.
Barton Fink is a playwright who has just made it big in New York.
A movie production company in Los Angeles invites him to come and write a script for them. Barton agrees but when he arrives in LA he finds out it is to be a wrestling picture. This does not interest or inspire him whatsoever.
Barton is a slightly strange loser, with a great heart. He is consistently let down by those around him and is extremely lonely.
The characters he meets throughout the film range from alcoholic writers, inspirational secretaries and a very kind hearted psychopath.
The film is largely about writers block (Something which Joel and Ethan Coen have had some experience with) and what it is like to be a writer. The film is like nothing you will have ever seen.
It is a superbly original film about creativity and the pain that comes with it.
