    The Coen Brothers Films Ranked

    From the little that I've read it seems like Burn After Reading is the Coens most divisive film. Most people tend to agree Ladykillers is bad while No Country For Old Men is brilliant. Of course you'll find people, like myself, that love Fargo and others find it to be average but I don't think you'll find very many people who really dislike it.

    Whoa. That was the best thriller I've seen in a long time. I can't even remember a film that "had me thrilled" more than this one; I was literally clenched for 90%+ of this film.
