Much less acidic than Fargo, not as graceful as The Big Lebowsky, and barely enigmatic as Barton Fink, The Man Who Wasn't There is, isn't far from being the best film of the [Coen Brothers]. [Full review in Spanish]
Few outside of Coen cliques paid this nihilistic neo-noir much attention. Perhaps that's its wryest, slyest punchline: To watch Ed Crane is to largely forget him and, upon returning to him, revisit the pleasure of meeting him for the first time.
Slowly paced for a thriller and with a hero many will find off-putting, this is nevertheless a gripping, unusual and challenging work from the most consistently brilliant filmmakers of the last decade.
