    Best child performance ever from a girl named Hailee Steinfeld and other than more great performances especially from the DUDE.

    A poignant and beautiful film, this 2010 version of True Grit by the Coen brothers is a cinematic gem. With a soul and spirit worthy of the classic Westerns from the '50s or the '60s, on a visual level this movie is almost a miraculous occurrence in contemporary cinema.

    Featuring top-notch performances from Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin, this movie deserves all the acclaim it got when it was released because it is really that good.…

    Once you get used to the rather curious tone (should a movie about a manhunt be this funny?!?), 'True Grit' is a shining example of how, with a good script and great actors, watching characters sitting around talking can be a revelatory experience. Bridges, Damon and Steinfeld - not fazed by her company - are all brilliant.

    I didn't realize how much I love True Grit.

    I liked it quite a bit the first two times I saw it, but on my third viewing almost everything about it struck me as being awesome. Let me clarify, much of what is awesome is the written word in the film. The dialogue is beyond choice.

    "I'd give three dollars for a pickled buffalo tongue."

    "He spills the banks of English."

    "You give our very little sugar with your pronouncements."…

    One of the best western-dramas I've ever watched, True Grit features great direction, a typically great Bridges and a magnetic Hailee Steinfeld in the leading role. The fine plot keeps you interested in the film through its whole length. Also it seems to allow you to understand the characters deeply as the story progresses.

    This remake is one of the Coen brother's most elegant but perhaps straightforward films. That may translate that it doesn't feel so much like a quintessential Coen's work; with True Grit they haven't quite managed to leave enough of a considerable imprint on their reinterpretation of Henry Hathaway's award winning western.

    The set design is terrific and the cinematography capturing the Old West is astounding; the Coen's are noted masters at transporting audiences to different times and places and this…

    Another add to my Coen Brothers retrospective. This time, it was time to re-watch 2010 hit True Grit, a picture that i haven't seen probably since it's release. This was a film that i remembered pretty clearly even though i hadn't watched it in years, i remember having liked it a lot and with that in my…

    The Coen brothers remake of this classic western takes more directly from the original novel than the 1969 John Wayne film. I think this was the right thing to do, giving this remake a fresh and different tone and feel. The plot is much the same; a young girl hires a US Marshall to track and apprehend her father's killer. They are joined by a Texas Ranger, played here by Matt Damon with impressive sideburns. I like Jeff Daniels as…
