Overview

Joel and Ethan Coen make up one of the most original and unconventional movie-making partnerships to come out of America at the end of the 20th century. From their debut tour de force Blood Simple to the hugely acclaimed The Man Who Wasn't There, the brothers' films have attracted critical kudos and commercial success in equal measure due to their irreverent, individual, and technically virtuoso nature. Each of their films defies categorization, yet there is never any doubt that it is a Coen brothers movie. This exploration of the movie career of Hollywood's best-loved outsiders charts their rise from cult favorites to box-office contenders, while combining indispensable reference material and critical analysis of their films.
