Coen Brothers

Intolerable Cruelty finally came down to less than $30, so I now have another Coen brothers film in my collection.

To complete my Coen brothers collection, I now only have to get:

Blood Simple
Barton Fink
Miller's Crossing
The Hudsucker Proxy

The Hudsucker Proxy is now out on DVD, but I don't know about the rest. I fear that Blood Simple, being their relatively obscure debut, may never be released, but I'll wait and see.

I'm also eagerly anticipating their next film The Ladykillers, which intriguingly is a re-make of a 1955 film that starred Alec Guiness. The most exciting aspect of this is Tom Hanks has the lead in a Coen brothers film! What a killer combo!

Anyway, there is also one other "Coen brothers" film that I might consider for my collection (although I haven't seen it). Crimewave is a rarity, that is a film that was written by the Coen brothers, but directed by someone else (Sam Raimi).

Maybe I'll collect all of Sam Raimi's films as well. I already have Spider-Man and Darkman.
