it will definitely show wilders range. very different films but both indicative of the types of films he makes. the coen thing is interesting. im a huge fan of theirs. my two favorite coen films arent here on your list - millers crossing and burn after reading - and i also love O Brother. not all of their films are great but overall i really appreciate their versatility. i hear they are writing a horror/western. there is just nothing that these guys wont try, and i feel like they usually succeed.

i guess i didnt list fargo because i dont really see it as characterizing their work. i find that film overrated and feel that it characterizes a certain segment of their work, but not their best. their darker pictures are a bit better to me - like millers crossing. all of their films are just so unique that its hard to pick one film that is all that much like the rest.

citizen kane is welles best obviously, but i recommend touch of evil as well. billy wilders "the apartment" is also good if you liked sunset blvd. not the same film by any means, but a good sample of wilders work.
