The Coen Brothers This Book Really Ties the Films TogetherReally The Coen Kindle Ties the Films Together film critic Adam Nayman carefully sifts through their complex cinematic universe in an effort to plot as he puts it some Grand Unified Theory of Coen ness The book combines critical text biography close film analysis and enlightening interviews with key. The Coens if not the greatest filmmakers of our time are certainly my favourites and Nayman analysis is informative and enthralling I am sad that he didn't mention Mike Zoss Producer making a little extra cash as a pharmacist in No Country for Old Men but he pretty much covers everything else a great read

Adam Nayman Í 2 Summary

From such cult hits as Raising Arizona Brothers This MOBI #239and The Big Lebowski to major critical darlings Fargo No Country for Old Men and Inside Llewyn Davis Ethan and Joel Coen have cultivated a bleakly comical instantly recognizable voice in modern American cinema In The Coen Brothers This Book. This book is a real labour of love by Adam Nayman Weighing in at around 2kg it is full of analysis interviews and interesting facts relating to Coen Brothers movies up to and including Hail CaesarGiven that this is otherwise a very good book it might seem to be rather pedantic and hypercritical to point out that unfortunately it is marred by some lapses which really should have been picked up by Nayman's editor andor proof reader Allowing for a few typos which may not be the author's fault there are errors which range from minor to egregiousIn the Introduction Barton Fink is said to be set in the 1930s; the film script says that the character is a man in his 30s but as the opening seuence to the film states 'New York City 1941' it's clearly set in the 1940s In the chapter devoted to the same movie the photo caption of Fink's hotel neighbour Charlie Meadows p73 claims that Charlie is 'fondling a pornographic playing card' when he is actually revealing the lining of his tie on which is printed a saucy pictureDescribing on page 229 that in Burn After Reading Chad has his head blown 'clean off' is resorting to hyperbole he is certainly shot through the forehead but as we see his head is nowhere near 'blown off'The above mentioned points are relatively minor in comparison with Mr Nayman's rewriting on page 159 of the execution scene in The Man Who Wasn't There Rather than Nayman's claim of Ed's death by lethal injection evoking the chemicals used in dry cleaning the film script and the version of the film that I've seen ends with Ed Crane going to the electric chair his leg being shaved in preparation for an electrode to be attached which evokes the earlier scene in which he shaves his wife's leg while she is in the bathSuch a shame; this could have ualified for a five star review but it really should be reduced to three stars for carelessness However Mr Nayman's evident enthusiasm and some otherwise very good analysis redeems half a star which is rounded up making fourJim Simpson
