    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.

    That's a tough one. Maybe:

    The Big Lebowski
    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

    1) The Big Lebowski
    2) No Country For Old Men

    3) O Brother Where Art Thou
    4) The Man Who Wasn't There
    5) Burn After Reading

    For me The Big Lebowski and No Country For Old Men are by far their two best films.
