I'm a Coen Brothers fan. Not everything they make succeeds, but in general I love what they bring to the cinema table. I'm just curious what a pole would reveal on favs for the members of the board. 3 votes allowed. Tell me what your favorite Coen Brothers films are.

Miles ahead of their other films I've opted for The Big Lebowski.

I went with Miller's Crossing, The Big Lebowski, and No Country for Old Men.

I'm pretty much a fan of almost everything they've done, except for their slump of Intolerable Cruelty, The Ladykillers, and Burn After Reading.

I also really like A Serious Man, which I think is the Coen's at their most evocative, if not entertaining.

(Also, it should be "poll." The phrase "Coen Brothers Pole" would sound really dirty if their was an apostrophe in there.)

Fair enough, although I do like Intolerable Cruelty.

The Big Lebowski and No Country For Old Men are 2 of my favorites. Out of the other choices I like O Brother, Where Art Thou? the best.

I voted for Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski. Both very quirky and unique, they seem to stand out more from the rest of the bros. filmography along with Fargo too. Took me a while to really "get" the Big Lebowski but now I totally love it and could watch it over and over and over again. I also think Nicholas Cage should go back to doing black comedies like Raising Arizona, as those roles seem to suit him so much better than ones where he's trying to be some kind of action star.

BARTON FINK, A SERIOUS MAN and RAISING ARIZONA.  It was really hard to leave off FARGO, though.

People often don't believe me when I tell them I've never seen THE BIG LEBOWSKI.

That's an easy fix. WATCH IT!

I agree that's what he should do. However, I doubt he will ever work with the Coens again. His relationship with them during Raising Arizona was respectful but strained. He didn't like how autocratic they were. He would try to suggest things and they would ignore him.

The only ones I've seen are Raising Arizona and Fargo.  Raising Arizona was a really fun little movie, easily the best thing I've ever seen Nick Cage in.  Fargo was an okay movie, I'm baffled by all the hype around it though.

Loved Raising Arizona when I first saw it years ago, and now that I'm a Dad I find it even funnier.

O Brother Where Art Thou? is my other Coen Bros. fave. It's delightfully odd-ball.

I voted for Fargo 'cause it's their only movie I've seen. I've always wanted to see Blood Simple, though. I remember it from back in the rental days it seemed to always be in the 'horror' section and I thought it looked pretty neat. Don't know why I never picked it up.  Question
