    No rating - This is why Rotten Tomatoes is "full of it'. My wife and I rate Barton Fink as one of the worst movies to compare to all other movies.

    Beautiful cinematography especially the use of ambient light.

    Winning Palme d'Or, Best Director and Actor at the 1991 Cannes, the Coen brothers' darksome comedy about a playwright ensnarled in the inferno of a writer's block is drenched in a pasquinade of 1930s Hollywood and dripping with screwy elemental symbolism.

    "Barton Fink" is an amazingly satisfying film. The Coen brothers trademark is thick. In my opinion, this is one of the greatest movies ever made. Although, it's another debatable. The nuance is so comical with the filmmaking technique. There are nuances of horror about the depiction of a slum hotel. Barton Fink is a strong character. As like the man behind its scene. He is great but his prowess turns to hell. It's a plain character. There is so much symbolism in this film. Ambiguity at the end of the film. Depends on the audience's interpretation. From here, let the imagination free. There is an intermediary between hell and heaven in Hollywood. Or even everyday life.

    Another fantastically offbeat feature presentation by the Coens Barton Fink tells the story of a writer who relocates from the East to the West coast to make it in Hollywood. Unfortunately for him a lot of chaos ensues in typical quirky Coen style. John Turturro is well suited for the lead and John Goodman always manages to steal the show. This is a great film and an early indication of the evolving style of the Coens. (John Turturro is amazing as the hapless writer in this Coen brother noir)
