Surely any Coen Bros top 5 should include Raising Arizona?

Surely.

Even if I liked his movies, he's still an idiot, as a human being, have you guys ever read any interviews with him? Jesus.

I don't hate him outright, though, his animated sequences for Monty Python were good.

I agree. His Python cartoons are great but his feature films are too all over the place for me. I can understand why some people might like that about them though.

I tend to like flabby short films and ultra-tight feature films. Anyone wanting to know how to make the perfect tight-as-Miley feature should just watch Bresson's A Man Escaped, Spielberg's Duel or Jaws, or Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13. Zero flab. That takes real talent.

It's in my top 6, for sure.

Hah, you know what I meant. But anyway, surprised how similiar a lot of my stuff is to his, I mean... considering I'd never seen any of it before.

As far as experimental films go, he's the real deal imo, some of that shit is just so mindboggling, how he'd set up these really really elaborate shots for about less than 1 second of screen time. Never having a chance to rest my eyes at all. Just insane.

Jeff Keen is a genius, full stop. That DVD is brilliant. His stuff was impossible to get hold of for so long.

It's funny, I ordered it off of ebay, the seller told me it was region 0, it ended up being region 2, but he let me keep the dvd, and he refunded my money ($50). I burnt the discs to actual region 0 discs and then sold the dvd to a friend who only watches movies on his laptop anyway. So, I got the dvd's, and made a profit off of them.

My favorite stuff is the home movie shit, with the 4 screens. Everything he does is so.. extreme. I love it.

Just realized no one has mentioned Miller's Crossing. I love that movie, great crime drama. I think Gabriel Byrne has to be one of the best, and coolest, actors to never get an Oscar nom.

Gabriel Byrne, ugh. GOTHIC is one of the worst films ever made, he's so terrible in it that it's hilarious. Miller's Crossing is good but it gets old to me.

Yeah, I like Millers Crossing a lot. And yeah, it's weird if its true that Gabriel Byrne has never received even an oscar nomination. Another weird oscar thing, has 'Best Film' ever gone to a foreign language film?

I can't even that of that many that were nominated for "Best film" instead of "Best foreign film"... cries and whispers comes to mind..

maybe there's something within the academy rules stating best film has to be english language. I just took a look through the winners and nominations for the sixties and saw no mention of any movies by Godard, Fellini, Antonioni or Bergman in ther 'best film' category, so I'm guessing it has to be. It does cheapen the award somewhat though. Was Tom Jones really a better movie than 8 1/2?

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Life is Beautiful also come to mind but neither won the best picture Oscar both deserved it. CTHD lost to Gladiator
and LIB lost to Shakespeare in Love. Both good but inferior imo.
