    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The Coens always crossed a fine line between comedy, drama, and horror, often as the main focus or a minor aside detour. Yet, "Barton Fink" may be the closest they've gotten to balancing all three without falling into the stumbling blocks them.
