    My wife awesome woman that she is got me this book for Christmas of 2013 I have just finished the book now not because it was a long read but because we read the chapters as we worked our way through the Coen Brothers’ films In fact I read the book twice because I would read each chapter to myself before watching well re watching in most cases the film and then afterward I would read the chapter aloud to her What a wonderful way to work through the first ten films of the Coen Brothers canonRobson does a fantastic job of supplying an entertaining array of facts and analysis of each film Pulling from interviews with the brothers themselves as well as from interviews with actors set designers and cinematographers he provides insight into each film at just about every stage of production from the writing of the script to the features available on the DVDs Robson's only disservice is the short shrift given to Intolerable Cruelty which gets less attention than his overview of Crimewave and The Naked Man in which the Coen's played a significantly smaller role Perhaps he was in a hurry to be done with his book Aside from that one oversight however Robson does a great job He has created a book that is as funny and intellectual as the Coen brothers themselves

    Informative well written film by film analysis It ends just before the 2003 release of Intolerable Cruelty which the book predicts will be a blockbuster Spoiler alert it wasn't
