    The Big Lebowski is the greatest comedy ever made.

    Fargo, Lebowski, O Brother, No Country, and True Grit are probably my top five. Inside Llewyn Davis is up there as well.
  5. I think Fargo sticks with me the most, but god damn I love the ending of Burn After Reading.

    I had no idea Joel was doing a Macbeth adaptation. Also interesting Ethan isn't involved at all.

    It’s not at their top tier stuff but Hail Caesar is maybe underappreciated. Even outside of the Channing Tatum scenes which are objectively amazing.

    Hail, Caesar! was another movie like Popstar where I was the only one in the theater that was laughing 90% of the time

    I think No Country, Lebowski and Raising Arizona are my top 3. They've made a lot of great stuff though.

    I revisited A Serious Man recently, and it’s so much better than I remembered.

    I didn't really get A Serious Man when it came out, but my appreciation for it is always growing.

    Yeah coming out of the theater for A Simple Man I legitimately thought it was bad, but without even rewatching I’ve come to think highly of it. I should give it a viewing soon.
  20. Morrissey


    I think I have said this before, but their run from 2007 to 2010 is incredible. To release four great films in four years is a really incredible feat.

    I havent seen them all - but Lebowski and Fargo and terrific. If I needed a 3rd to wrap it up.... Raising Arizona with Cage cracks me up all the time.

    Buster Scruggs is incredibly rewatchable.

    Absolutely my favorite comedic directors. Raising Arizona, Lebowski, O Brother, Burn After Reading, Hail, Caesar!, and arguably Fargo are truly some of my favorites of all time.

    Then when you get into their dramas on top of that it’s truly insane

    Barton Fink, A Serious Man, Inside Llewyn Davis: The holy trinity.

    Joel and Ethan together are superhuman
