The Top Ten

The Big Lebowski
The perfect blend of comedy and mystery; I've always loved this movie. It's certainly a good thing this film has had a resurgence in popularity and hasn't gone too under the radar. Far more complex and intricate than the stoner comedy it might first come off as. View at as many times as you like; you'll always laugh.
I admit that No Country for Old Men is probably a better film than The Big Lebowski, but this film is so much more in the style of the Coen brothers. This film didn't give a crap about being a money making enterprise. This film was made to make a film that people would have a laugh at, such a rare quality in films these days.
Absolutely brilliant! Went to see this at the cinema just off Leicester sq, for maybe the...30th time! First time on the big screen though, and it was great; better, funnier, and more enjoyable than it ever has been before. Thank you Joel and Ethan, for making my Sunday!
[Newest]Every time I watch it, it gets better!

Frances McDormand is amazing. I smile every time I think of her performance. What can you say about William Macey? He was brilliant! Throw in the inept bad guys and the whole northern Minnesota accent and environment, and you have their best film among so many that are marvelous and not the usual Hollywood film movies.
You know when a film is special when you can watch it again and again, like this one is for me. If you've never seen this film then you obviously don't do movies or are still wearing nappies!
Oh yeah greatest of acting brilliant especially the cool lady cop bring em on again if as good as this
[Newest]Loved it. Frances McDormand and Williams Macy were superb. I shiver each time I watch it.

3No Country for Old Men
Winner of 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor in a Supporting role: Javier Bardem


Unique story. Great characters. suspensful. profound diologue.
My first and my favorite. A deeply entertaining film from start to finish.


4O Brother, Where Art Thou?
I didn't know they also made Raising Arizona. These guys are brilliant. Raising Arizona was completely original, and so was O'Brother.

O'Brother's look, dialog and music made for a great film. I think it was highly underrated. Great movie.


As usual, the Coen brothers' combination of unique dialogue and colorful characters makes for a thoroughly entertaining film. Also, the golden hue to the outdoor scenes was breathtaking. Definitely one of my favorites.
In a time where 9/11 had everyone down... this movie brought a smile to our faces and distracted us from a day that know one will forget... even if for a short time. God bless the Coen brothers!

5Raising Arizona
Such a hard choice. ALL of these films deserve to be on the best films of all time! Let alone best Coen Brother films. The directing and producing, and script came naturally.


Still my favorite Coen brothers film. Great cast. The dialogue and characters were unique. I know it by heart after having watched it so many times.

6Blood Simple
Superb direct movie very deep suspense

7Miller's Crossing
Absolute gem of a movie and weirdly underrated. A theatrical bomb on initial release but revived to live again on DVD. High production values, fabulous acting, direction and settings. The real charm here is the script; one of the wittiest you'll ever hear. Bravo cohens!
Haunting theme, razor sharp dialogue a thinking mans gangster epic.
Brilliant gangster movie - very brainy, not bloody!

8True Grit
A very poor remake. The original is very tough act to follow
John Wayne is just too tough and act to follow.

9Barton Fink
The weirdness of this movie is what makes it so great

10Intolerable Cruelty

The Contenders

11A Serious Man
Rabbi Marshak cannot see you now, he is thinking.

12Burn After Reading

13The Ladykillers
This is my favorite of all! I had the hardest time trying to find a copy of this movie and it will definitely be one of those things I will grab first if I ever have to evacuate my home in an emergency. The story line was one of the best and yes, there is a ginger tabby cat who steals the show!

14The Man Who Wasn't There
Superb... The camera work, the music (can not go wron with Beethoven) the script and the cast... Brilliant, simply Brilliant.

15Inside Llewyn Davis
Loved this movie. A quiet movie with a great story, great music and the lighting was beautiful.
Excellent Movie...One of my favorite!

16The Hudsucker Proxy
