Over the past year and a half, I've been slowly watching every movie directed by the Coen Brothers movie in production order. I've got one left at this point, and I'm still not sure what I should do what (if anything) I'll try to write in reflection when I'm done with them all.


An interesting observation: the Coens are great at comedic scenes and bad at putting those scenes together into connected narratives: they always feel disconnected, disjointed, weird. This first shows up in Raising Arizona but it's true in almost all of their comedies. Their best comedies (like The Big Lebowski) are the ones where they lean into this disjointedness.

Anyway, not sure what unnecessary semi-masochistic movie-watching agenda I'll set after this. A chronological rewatch of every Fellini movie? Every Fast & Furious movie? Every Ralph Bakshi movie? The possibilities are endless probably.
