HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICEon November 22, 2001
Format: Paperback
Even in their less succesful films, the Coen brothers never fail to deliver something interesting. TMWWT-their latest film, and areturn to the neo-noir territory of Blood Simple-is no exception. Even though it goes slightly off the rails in the last twenty minutes, the film is full of the entertaining oddballs one expects from them. The book is the shooting script, which upon first read doesn't appear to have any deviations from the finished film, along with a three page introduction by their film editor, Roderick Jaynes, in which he discusses the genesis of the title. Good reading for aspiring screen (and other) writers.

If you like the Coen Brothers (Barton Fink), Alfred Hitchcock, and Rod Serling then you will love this movie. Be prepared to sit back and relax. If you are already tense, this won't help you relax because you will be waiting for things to happen with a movie that shuffles as slowly as Prissy. Don't think I didn't like it because I did...laughed out loud at least 3 or 4 times, but I laughed AT the movie, not with it. If you like weird movies you will love this. I loved it even though it is a little weird. Pure Coen/Hitchcock/Serling!

Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase
This latest tale from the Coen Brothers is a perfectly realized portrait of modern man's plight as just another gear in the hair-cutting machine. Dread and laughs abound, in equal measure. And, by the way, Roderick Jaynes, the film editor who introduces the screenplay, doesn't actually exist. Whenever the Coens edit one of their movies themselves, they use "Jaynes" as a pseudonym.
