The movie remains mired in a smart-alecky film-school sensibility.

"Coen seems to signal to his hip urban audience that he shares their giggling contempt for the pulpy conceits on display."Says the guy who writes for THE CHICAGO READER. So I guess your hip urban audience shares your contempt for the classic movies that everyone else seems to enjoy. Honestly, the movie doesn't try very hard to be clever at all; its moments of genius are austere and understated, as is the case in most Coen bros. films. It reserves most of its film-schoolesque style for the final shot - which is one of the best ever, even if it is conceited.I'm fighting really hard not to make fun of your evident hermaphroditism, by the way.

Do you write stupid, myopic reviews like this as a form of retaliation for how much everyone thinks you look like a woman?
This film is a masterpiece, a true work of art in almost every respect. Just because you can't understand it doesn't mean it's 'smart-alecky', you're just either too ignorant or too dumb to get it.
