Comments: 'Burn,' and Ranking the Coens

I see J.K. in person all the the time. He lives in the valley...

Holy Crap....that's an interesting one.

I'm going to do 12, since it'll be this week sometime before I see "Burn..."

1. Big Lebowski
2. No Country for Old Men
3. Raising Arizona
4. Fargo
5. Miller's Crossing
6. O Brother Where Art Thou?
7. Blood Simple
8. The Ladykillers
9. The Hudsucker Proxy
10. Barton Fink
11. The Man Who Wasn't There
12. Intolerable Cruelty

I'm the same way...there's not a lot of space between 3 and 7. In fact, I'd say all of the top 7 are in my personal top 50 (or so).

And I've got a strange, soft spot in my heart for Ladykillers, if only because I want Tom Hanks to do comedy a little more...out of all his talents, he's maybe his generation's finest physical comedian....but I grant you, it's an odd mess...
