    This is my first Coen Brothers film (I know, I know!) and I am sold. I have so much I want to say about this, I had to sleep on it before I even attempted it, and I still don’t trust I’m going to hit it all, but we’re giving it a shot. 

    I watched this anticipating it would complement a very specific mood I was in, and I was absolutely correct. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t always…

    Martin Scorcese is one of those directors who is so legendary and monolithic that I often forget just how good he really is. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the man knows how to make a movie.

    I talked about this when I watched Raging Bull several months ago, but Scorcese's command of the camera is absolutely incredible. The way he allows it to move throughout these worlds and tell these stories is incredible. He allows it…
