Combining thoughtful eccentricity, wry humor, irony, and often brutal violence, the Coen brothers have crafted a style of filmmaking that pays tribute to classic American movie genres yet maintains a distinctly postmodern feel. Since arriving on the film scene, the Coens have amassed an impressive body of work that has garnered them critical acclaim and a devoted cult following.

In chapters focusing on major characters, author Ryan Doom looks at the chaotic cinematic universe of the Coens, where violent acts inevitably have devastating, unintended consequences." "The remarkable gallery of those Coen characters is all here: hard-boiled gangster Tom Reagan from Miller's Crossing, overmatched amateur kidnapper Jerry Lundegaard from Fargo, accidental private eye "The Dude" from The Big Lebowski, psychopathic assassin-for-hire Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men, and more." "In examining a body of work that includes thrillers, mysteries, film noir, gangster movies, and westerns, The Brothers Coen offers film lovers a fresh take on the working relationship of the Coen brothers - and a new understanding of the rogues gallery they bring to the screen."--BOOK JACKET+-+83400886858378ocn057417433com20030.53Luhr, WilliamThe Coen brothers' FargoThe most commercially and critically successful film of Ethan and Joel Coen, Fargo was nominated for five Academy Awards and received two, an exceptional achievement for a low budget, independently produced film.

BartonJoel and Ethan CoenCriticism, interpretation, etc"With landmark films such as Fargo, O Brother Where art Thou?, Blood Simple, and Raising Arizona, the Coen brothers have achieved both critical and commercial success. Proving the existence of a viable market for "small" films that are also intellectually rewarding, their work has exploded generic conventions amid rich webs of transtextural references. In Joel and Ethan Coen, R. Barton Palmer argues that the Coen oeuvre also forms a central element in what might be called postmodernist filmmaking. Mixing high and low cultural sources and blurring genres like noir and comedy, the use of pastiche and anti-realist elements in films such as The Hudsucker Proxy and Barton Fink clearly fit the postmodernist paradigm. Palmer argues that for a full understanding of the Coen brothers unique position within film culture, it is important to see how they have developed a new type of text within general postmodernist practice that Palmer terms commercial/independent. Analyzing their substantial body of work from this "generic" framework is the central focus on this book."--Book cover+-+40362570754976ocn076898067book20070.50Rowell, EricaThe brothers Grim : the films of Ethan and Joel CoenCriticism, interpretation, etcIn 1984 Joel and Ethan Coen burst onto the art-house film scene with their neo-noir Blood Simple and ever since then they have sharpened the cutting edge of independent film. Blending black humor and violence with unconventional narrative twists, their acclaimed movies evoke highly charged worlds of passion, absurdity, nightmare realms, and petty human failures, all the while revealing the filmmakers' penchant for visual jokes and bravura technical strokes. Their central characters may be blind to reality and individual flaws, but their illusions, dreams, fears, and desires map the boundaries of their worlds--worlds made stunningly memorable by the Coens. The Brothers Grim examines the inner workings of the Coens' body of work and exposes its roots and themes. Each chapter discusses a Coen brothers movie in terms of its primary themes, social and political contexts, narrative techniques, influences and relationship to their other films, and, more broadly, to cinema. Rowell also examines the Coens' referential modus operandi that retreads cinema, literature, history, philosophy, and art to amplify their films' themes. This comprehensive guide--enhanced by fifty photographs--is for anyone excited to read about the Coens' unique brand of cinema. -- Publisher+-+45030356354756ocn244769022com20000.39Levine, JoshThe Coen brothers the story of two American filmmakersBiographyWith the smash success of Fargo, the filmmaking team of Joel and EthanCoen finally received their deserved recognition.
