The Coen Brothers’ movies in order
In which we attempt the impossible: To rank the incredible films of the Coen Brothers.
Let’s be honest: when it comes to movies by Joel and Ethan Coens, there are no losers. Over the last (almost) three decades, the dynamic duo known as the Coen Brothers have crafted some of the most memorable, most quotable, funniest, strangest, darkest, and generally greatest movies. Their films are typically evocative of simpler times while creating complex stories filled with indelible characters range from the sublime “The Dude” to the creepy motorcycle riding maniacal momma’s boy in “Raising Arizona.” These remarkable characters are cast from a steady stable of venerable actors like George Clooney, John Turturro, Francis McDormand, John Goodman, Jeff Bridges, Steve Buscemi, and many more willing to put on a fake mustache, prosthetic limb, unnecessary eye patch, or incredibly bad haircut (Javier Bardem has never looked worse than in “No Country For Old Men”) in order to enter the weird and wonderful of the Coen Brothers. And who wouldn’t jump at a chance to star in one of their viciously funny, hilariously blood-soaked, funny, witty, and clever films? The Coen Brothers make amazing movies, bar none.
