What's Your Favorite Coen Brothers Film?

The Screen Junkies tackle this difficult question.

Joel and Ethan Coen are legendary Oscar winning pair of codirectors in the world of cinema.

They're renowned for their blisteringly dark comedies and their brutally realistic crime dramas.

Which film(s) of theirs is your favorite?

@farmerman,
Funny but I was right up there with "No Country..." until the last 15 minutes of it. IT finally went NOQHERE. IT GAVE UP AS A MOVIE and went with real life (not all murders get solved).

That sucks

Anyway, who are these three douche bags? Bloggers trying to earn a living at it right?

@tsarstepan,
I loved the link! Thanks for turning me on to it.

You've given me a cool, new video process for the next few weeks. I hadn't even known Miller's Crossing was a Coen Bros movie, and I'd forgotten to watch Burn After Reading... So many to check out.

Didn't see Llewyn Davis. I was actually going to watch it in the theater, heard bad buzz and cancelled my plans. I'm planning a Coen Film Festival!

I've seen Fargo, Lebowski, Oh Brother, Raising Arizona, Old Country, Man Wasn't There, tried to sit through Hudsucker and didn't.

Not a big enough reservoir to make an informed choice but I loved Raising Arizona almost as much as I did Lebowski.

The Dude a the family patron saint.

I'm going to have to throw in a vote for No Country For Old Men. To be fair I haven't seen all of the Coen brothers' movies but I've seen a fair amount of the ones listed here. I'd probably need to do some re-watches but it's hard to beat a movie that made Javier Bardem look like this:

I'd forgotten that some on the list were Coen brothers.

I loved all of their stuff from 1984 - 2000 then it was pretty up and down for me.

I pretty much gave up on them after Burn After Reading. Some great scenes, but I really disliked that film as a whole.

I did like Inside Llewyn Davis, but didn't love it the way I loved some of their earlier work.

@tsarstepan,
Big Lebowski is easily my favorite, but I like a lot of the other ones.
