Dir: Joel Coen (No Country for Old Men, Fargo, Barton Fink)
Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, David Huddleston
Seen: February 2, 2008 thanks to the Toronto Public Library
Reason to see: General critical acclaim, renewed buzz after the release of No Country for Old Men and it really is just one of those films everyone talks about
This is a Non-Review, as I turned the film off 20 minutes in.
I will say that I did get a sense of cleverness in this film, mostly in the dialogue and going for the unexpected at moments but overall I couldn't see it though. Mean people, intimidation, gender crap... are all out in full force. It isn't for me.
Shannon's Overall View:
Of what I did see, I didn't like
I'd not watch it again
I'd not recommend it
