    Coen Brothers don't stop surprising me. No matter what genre they foray into, they seem to be (so-totally) in control with the content. The ease with which they deal with their subjects is something that any filmmaker would love to imbibe. Take a bow, masters - yet again!! 6 years 10 months ago

    This is one of the brothers' drier works, a good choice for those who enjoy whole wheat toast. 6 years 10 months ago

    Somehow I didn't see this one until this very moment. Luckily, I got to see it on the big screen which really does justice to the beautiful images. The Coen Brothers still succeed in surprising me- this one being far more serious than most of them, with the almost complete absence of the typical Coen humor- made me left speechless for a while. Touching (once again) on the book of job and exploring the emptiness of the protagonist worked excellent with the choice of shooting in black and white.
    I can understand why some will not enjoy this one as it's a bit different from most of the other ones (even 'A Serious Man' was a bit more comical).
    The Coen Brothers have already explored many genres and styles (yet, always with a clear touch of their own)- this one was still quite different from the others and I absolutely loved it.
