  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Hailed as the Brothers' masterpiece, this neo-noir thriller is in the mould of a James M Cain pulp novel, yet in typical Coens style draws on so many genres it is impossible to categorise. The understated, enigmatic central performance of Thornton as the Barber is a stunning achievement, as is Roger Deakins' wonderful black and white photography. Do not miss.
