Reviews
Mine: Maybe the best of the Coen Brothers films. Emotionally chilling, visually striking. Wonderful performances. Gets better every time I see it.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Moody, stylish, and pretentious take on gangster films by the Coen brothers (Joel directed and cowrote with producer-brother Ethan). Byrne plays a black-hearted Irish mobster with a code of ethics known only to himself, and a vow of loyalty to crime kingpin Finney. Dense and dour, it's almost doggedly off-putting at first, but gets more involving as its serpentine story unfolds. Some bravura moments, as you'd expect from the Coens, along with Barry Sonnenfeld's compelling cinematography. Frances McDormand has unbilled bit as a secretary.
