  1. I like FARGO quite a bit, and sort of like NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN (it’s not exactly a likeable movie), but *that’s it* for the Coen Brothers, who made one of the worst movies I’ve EVER seen (and I’ve seen about 200,000 movies): BARTON FINK. I’ve never made it through that movie, and I tried three times. I need to see a “remake” of TRUE GRIT like I need to see a lesbian version of A SINGLE MAN.
