first time watching yet again, i was shocked to find out i have pretty much never watched a COEN brothers film, but things have changed.
the film is everything but anything that BLOOD SIMPLE was, it is overdramatic [maybe, overcomedic] but the movie completely works, everything in the right place.
the film feature great performances by both NICOLAS CAGE & HOLLY HUNTER, and FRANCES MCDORMAND is even better in a very small supporting role.
the “techs” aren’t great, in my opinion, they’re not even good, they sometimes work, sometimes do not, and somehow steal the focus from the narrative part.
entertaining, funny, goofy, however i like the dramatic and, in a way more serious, COENS, i think it’s worth the watch, but just once.
