Coens next

100%

Well, after NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN went ahead and got itself some insanely good reviews and almost certainly an Oscar for Javier Bardem, it looks like the Coen brothers are going to head back to the West, as they make a full throttle Spaghetti Western. Since, you know, stick to what works. And apparently this thing will be graphic, "we've written a western with a lot of violence in it. There's scalping and hanging ... it's good. Indians torturing people with ants, cutting their eyelids off... It's a proper western, a real western, set in the 1870s. It's got a scene that no one will ever forget because of one particular chicken," they warned. I get way too excited, way too quickly, so after a pretty remarkable slump, I choose to believe that the Coens are back. And when your next film stars George Clooney and Brad Pitt (BURN AFTER READING), well then I just have to assume it's going to be great too, especially since my memory flat out refuses to acknowledge OCEAN'S TWELVE. As such, with my Sherlock Holmesian logic, I deduce that this film will be awesome.
Extra Tidbit: After getting his hair cut for the movie, Javier Bardem: "Oh no, now I won't get laid for the next two months". It was probably worth it, Javi.

A real western!

The Coens are the film historians of filmmaking (never mind Tarantino and his exploitation flicks). With the exception of "No Country for Old Men" and possibly "Fargo," everything they have done has been an homage to old genre movies ("The Big Lebowski" is an homage to detective stories for Chrissakes).

What they haven't done is pay homage to the western. "No Country" doesn't exactly count in that respect.

Anyway, I expect what they do will be counted among their best efforts, because

Anyway, I expect what they do will be counted among their best efforts, because when these two get their hands on something they haven't done before (the gangster film, the screwball comedy) they do wonders with it.

I only wish they were talking about "Blood Meridian" - which is truly a great, vicious novel that I think only a very select few of directors would get right. Them being one (or rather two)

Javi

The guy can act like no other. Check out his recent resume: Oscar nom for BEFORE NIGHT FALLS, a cool bit part in COLLATERAL, THE SEA INSIDE won Best Foreign Film, and he's also worked with the likes of Pedro Almodovar and Milos Forman. Homeboy must be knee-deep in pussay.

i liked ocean's 12

i dunno, a lot of things pop into my mind when i think of "...a scene that no one will ever forget because of one particular chicken."

1 chicken, 2 cups perhaps?

I would love it if chicks wanted to have sex with me. It's too bad a mere haircut won't fix that.
