One of my favorite Coen films because of the sheer absurdity & side characters. Every character is unique and interesting & plot is twisty.
Such a good Coen flick, little bit of symbolism if you care or not though it doesn't matter too much
A film about a man who puts his coat on before escaping a fire. Would you suffer the present to be thankful for the past?
Extremely well made film, fun characters, bug performances and a lot to chew on with the story
Brilliant drama comedy movie. Fantastic script, characters and acting. Typical Coen brothers movie, must see
This movie isn’t for everyone, but I fell in love with it when I saw it. If you are a Coen Brothers fan this is a must watch.
Spectacular, thought-provoking and beautifully nuanced.
Great movie about writing especially about writing for oneself and writing for Hollywood. More people should view the movie.
A Hollywood dream from the Coen brothers. A hilarious dialog without silly jokes. A comedy masterpiece.
Coen Bros. satire about serious but clueless playwright in Hollywood. Turturro and John Goodman shine.

With Ran, legendary director Akira Kurosawa reimagines Shakespeare's King Lear as a singular historical epic set in sixteenth-century Japan.
