    Default What are your favourite top 5 films directed by Coen brothers?

    The Coen brothers are one of my favourite film directors and what I most admire about their movies is their consistency, I can't remember any film directed by the Coen brothers that disappointed me.

    I'm interested what are the opinions of the TC members. My top 5 films are:

    1. No Country for Old Men
    2. The Big Lebowski
    3. A Serious Man
    4. True Grit
    5. Blood Simple

    The only one of theirs I have liked is True Grit. The rest I've seen have disappointed.

    I like most of their movies, some of them a lot. Probably the biggest disappointment for me was The Ladykillers, which compared very poorly with the 1955 original.

    I'd put Fargo at the top of the list.

    Fargo
    O Brother, Where Art Thou?
    Miller's Crossing
    No Country for Old Men

    I've seen and adore most of their films. In order:

    1. No Country for Old Men - one of my favorite movies of all-time
    2. The Big Lebowski
    3. Fargo
    4. Inside Llewyn Davis
    5. A Serious Man

    And an honorable mention to Miller's Crossing.

    In no Particular order:

    - No Country For Old Men
    - The Big Lebowski (It just gets funnier every single time I watch it)
    - Fargo
    - O Brother...
    - It's a toss up between Raising Arizona and True Grit
