Fill your hand you son-of-a-bitch!

True Grit (2010)
Chosen by me because I like to go to the cinema a lot and the Coens are probably my favourite film-makers.

After a weak start with a pointless voice over (not used again till the end, where it is also useless, everything that is said could have simply been shown) the Coens once again forge a masterful, beautifully elegant Western. Less nihilistic than No Country for Old Men (or indeed a lot of their recent films) and filled with exceptional performances and an amazing score it is not the best Coen brothers film but is essential viewing.


  1. Which ones do you rate as their best?

  2. no country is just about a perfect movie.
    but my favourites are miller's crossing and big lebowski probably.

  3. No Country is superb. I've not seen those other two. Two for the list when we sign up to LoveFilm.
