  • A Coen Bros. gem - a work of genius

    By WaveSkiBoy
    Perhaps the finest Coen Bros film, at least arguably so, this movie has a superb cast performing at Academy levels, a terrific plot, a terrific subplot, fantastic cinematography, an incredible score - overall, a masterpiece.

    Finally! Thank you iTunes for "looking into you heart" and delivering this must own movie. Marcia Gay Harden was a total bombshell in her youth.
  • Finally - Greatest Gangster Movie Ever on iTunes!

    By Soundtrack123
    Finally, iTunes has published the greatest Gangster movie ever. Some might disagree with this description but this movie is smart and funny and engaging. This is understandable since it is a Coen Brothers' Movie. It can only be fully appreciated with multiple viewings because the plot twists are too many to describe. What a great movie!
  • Love this movie

    By mombetsu
    I'm a Coen fan in any case, but this is one of the best gangster/mob movies ever… and what a cast! The soundtrack as well is fab. Some iconic scenes. A must view for anyone remotely interested in, well, films :))) And hats off to the two leads: Albert Finney and Gabriel Byrne… though Turturro almost steals the show.

    This is an often forgotten film by the Coen brothers which is a darn shame considering how good it is. I get that it is hard to understand, but that does not mean it is boring. If you love gangster movies, then watch it and you will not be disappointed.

    I have viewed this film at least a dozen times and never grow tired of it. To date my favorite Coen Brothers' film. The musical score is beautiful, the acting top notch, the story well told. Definitely a keeper.
  • My first film job

    By rwentz21
    I was incredibly fortunate to work on this great film as a production assistant. 26 years later and those nine months still rank as the best job I ever had. There are still a couple of scenes not in the film tho, I wonder if they'll ever put out an unabridged version?
  • Stylistic Crime Drama

    By Frank C 66554321.
    Gabriel Byrne & Albert Finny are the only real reasons to watch this film. The story goes into the surreal and you have to read between the lines a lot.
  • The best Coen Bros film. Period.

    By DJ Kaze
    Still my absolute favorite Coen Bros. Movie, an Irish-flavored film noir heavily inspired by Dashiell Hammer's "The Glass Key" (itself adapted into a 1942 Alan Ladd/Veronica Lake crime drama for Paramount, which features many of the same memorable lines). From the script, direction and performances to the cinematography, art direction and music, this is a perfect film beginning to end. Improves with every viewing.
