Some of the most idiosyncratic films to come out of the 80s, 90s, and present were made by the Coen Brothers and if they didn’t make them, a lot of gratitude is owed to them for creating such ha distinct style.
The Coen’s came on the scene in 1984 with their debut Blood Simple, which we discussed in our Neo-Noir recap! They introduced themselves as two young and exciting new filmmakers who took their inspiration from the Golden Age of Hollywood and repackaged and re-introduced it for a brand new audience!
Over the next 35 years following the release of Blood Simple, the Coen’s have wandered in various genres from period pieces to comedies to mysteries and they’ve shown that regardless the mood of the film, they’re able to execute and still make the film wholly theirs.
This week, we went over some of our favorite films of the Coen’s (that we haven’t talked about already) and gave our reviews on them. Check it out below!
