Barton Fink (1991) – 4/5

Barton Fink (1991)

Interesting and weird at times. As w/ most Coen Brothers’ movies, great acting, directing, cinematography, timing, dialog, etc. Such a great film to just watch for the sake of a film.

The cop scenes remind me of “Miller’s Crossing” which is the best dialog ever IMO.


When Charlie carries the body and hits her head b/c he misjudges the space and then later you learn how he cuts off their heads so you realize why he misjudged the spacing – it’s great.

Haiku summary:
playwright goes out west
has writer’s block, meets neighbor
this guy cuts off heads
