Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Conversations with Filmmakers series continues with collections focused on subjects noted for their disdain for being interviewed. Few major filmmakers put as little of themselves on screen as do Joel and Ethan Coen, who've made a career mostly out of aping established movie genres, beginning with film noir in Blood Simple and continuing with gangster epic (Miller's Crossing), screwball comedy (The Hudsucker Proxy), and more noir (The Man Who Wasn't There). Every genre they filter through a darkly ironic worldview and film with striking visual panache. As entertaining as such pastiches are, perhaps their least categorizable films (Fargo; The Big Lebowski; O Brother, Where Art Thou?) are the most interesting. They're notoriously difficult, though apparently more disinterested than discomfited, interview subjects and, when an interviewer appeals to their inner film geek, respond with endearing enthusiasm. Many of these 28 pieces appeared in film journals, others in popular magazines and on NPR and the Web site Jeeem's CinePad.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We live in a time when it is easy to think that everything is on the Internet. There is so much about the Cohen Brothers there; we can easily loose sight of the fact that they flourished and were quite famous before the Internet even existed.

This book was published in 2006. It contains many classic verbatim translations of interviews with the Cohen Bothers about their works from the days before the Internet existed. Many exist only in VHS, radio, or other audio-visual formats that are not always easy to access. Before this book, print translations of these interviews were nonexistent.

If you’re doing comprehensive research into the Cohen Brothers, especially how they viewed their own films at the time they were making them, then this book will be an essential tool.

I used this book extensively recently when I was taking a three-month college-level seminar on the Cohen Brothers’ films. There were many times when I was able to share caveats from this book that provided significant new insights helpful to the entire class. I am pleased I purchased the book and recommend it to others in a similar academic situation.
