    Oh, and then view the Coen's remake with this theme in mind. See what then appears ... try it, it's very revealing whether or not you think either or both films are good or bad. 6 years 6 months ago

    Here's the thing: it should be viewed from the point of view of the plot and structure, whereupon it transforms into a masterpiece of character acting - which leads to its understated central theme or idea, namely how character judgements are formed. To get a better idea of this theme, look at the way such character judgements about the central figure of the "little old lady" are formed and developed.

    Ideally, therefore, if your are new to this film, you should see it twice before making up your own mind.
