Critic Review - rec.arts.movies.reviews

One might put up with the insufferable sense of superiority of the Coen brothers if this movie had some laughs.

The Cohen's insufferable sense of superiority, or the critics crippling sense of inadequacy?
Seriously, what a completely idiotic statement. Maybe you'd care to point out specific examples of egregiously pretentious elements of the film that screamed "we're better than other filmmakers"?

I don't see any superiority in this semi-autobiograpghical film. To the contrary. This film is the most personal film from the Coen brothers. The film is tremendously self depricating. No one in this small Jewish midwest community avoids the axe. There are so many funny moments in the film it's hard to keep track. In fact the entire film is a dark comedy,jumping from one absurdist moment to the next. Maybe you were expecting the Farelly brothers?
