JNagarya says:
I think it must be "Raising Arizona". Knew nothing about it, or the Coen brothers. Picked it up as recommended by a video store employee.

Or because a fan of the ever-hot Holly Hunter (previously seen in "Broadcast News"), who I've never met, and never attempted to contact, but who seems to be avoiding me for imagined-up "reasons":

Why else would she avoid meeting a person she doesn't even know exists?

Next might be "Hudsucker Proxy" (the mailroom scene dialogue is appropriately impossible) -- picked up unadvised, and perhaps because of having watched "Raising Arizona," and it was made by Coen brothers. Or because it has Tim Burton, who I enjoyed in "Little Miss Firecracker" (a wonderful sleeper with the ever-hot Holly Hunter, recommended to me by a video store employee, and recommended by me to you).

Or perhaps "Fargo" would be second, most likely behind "Raising Arizona," recommended by a friend. A distinguishing feature of "Fargo" is that it is populated with actors who are ordinary nondescripts. Steve Buscemi, as example, is bizarre in that ordinary, nondescript way of anonymous individuals one notes in passing, but never meets, in Kmart or Walmart. (I assume, as I never go to those stores.)

I'm surprised I'm so far behind on Coen brothers -- I believed I had more by them. They really should stop making films until I can catch up.

"Intolerable Cruelty" is weak (it's that which put me off buying Coen brothers). Not at all impressed -- with the script, with the acting, and especially don't see what all the shouting is about as concerns Clooney. In my view he's a nondescript mediocrity, his only distinguishing characteristic being others' suggestion that he is very slightly in the (I'm quoting) "Cary Grant mold".

Have but have yet to watch "The Man Who Wasn't There" (Zhang Yimou puts Jet Li, as "Nameless," at the center of his film "Hero," as result of which there is a hole in the film where he should be; why would I want to watch another film about a person who isn't there?).

Have -- given me by a friend -- but haven't watched anything on the "Burn After Reading" DVD except the extra/s. Perhaps I'm a bit put off, as a reader, by the suggestion that I should burn my books after reading them. Or because it suggests I burn the DVD after reading it, which is not only wrong-headed and confusing -- screwy, frankly -- because one doesn't read DVDs.

Currently trying to find the time to rewatch the non-Coen brothers "A Life Less Ordinary," with the ever-hot Holly Hunter -- who, if she by astronomically impossible small chance stumbles upon and reads this, is invited to wine and dine me, for doing which I will graciously allow her to pick up the tab, and to repeatedly have her way with me. Measurable possibility of becoming a family unit, but without the kidnapping.
