    Just saw it. I think the Coen brothers have to have a real love for that golden age of Hollywood to make fun of it the way they do. It's a tribute to the craft that went into all the old dance numbers, miniature special effects, Busby Berkeley swimming scenes and epic film making while poking fun at them all. Really great stuff. Just like all their films, I'm going to have to rewatch it a few times to get all the layers.

    Was it Big Lenowsky/Fargo good? Or just Burn After Reading good?

    there local boys, but honestly I've never really got what they were doing. I'm usually left with a feeling of well , *** was that ? and that's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back.

    Lebowski is a great film, Fargo, No Country Etc. This is a comedy, very funny but prob not a classic.

    Miller's Crossing is my current fav...What's the rumpus?

    More O Brother good. Great movie but it doesn't have the Dude.

    To me, it had little bits of their other movies hidden in it. It's set in the same time as Bartin Fink. It has a screwball thrust into solving a mystery like Lebowski. It has touches of slapstick like Raising Arizona. Some of the dialog is similar to Hudsucker. Clooney has a similar character as O Brother that thinks he's smarter than he actually is. I'd have to watch it again to pickup on other layers.
