DIRECTOR SEASON: The Coen Brothers

Coen-Brothers.jpg

Another month, another filmography to unravel. Up this month: Ethan and Joel Coen, infamously known as The Coen Brothers.

Known for their diverse and parodic style of filmmaking,  The Coen Brothers have been on my list for a while, thanks to the wonderful three films that I have already seen of theirs. These are:

  • Fargo (1996)
  • The Big Lebowski (1998)
  • No Country For Old Men (2007)

Unlike the previous two director’s whose filmographies I have attempted to fully discover (Scorsese & Spielberg), it’s possible that I might just be able to watch the entire filmography that the Brothers have to offer. Here are the films I aim to watch this month:

  • Blood Simple. (1984)
  • Raising Arizona (1987)
  • Miller’s Crossing (1990)
  • Barton Fink (1991)
  • The Hudsucker Proxy (1994)
  • O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
  • The Man Who Wasn’t There (2001)
  • Intolerable Cruelty (2003)
  • The Ladykillers (2004)
  • Burn After Reading (2008)
  • A Serious Man (2009)
  • True Grit (2010)
  • Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)
  • Hail, Caesar! (2016)

Which of these films are your favourites? Let me know!
