The Coen Brothers Movie List

by ryankl

My understanding of the best order of the Coen Brothers works.

1. Miller’s Crossing

2. The Big Lebowski

3. Blood Simple

4. The Hudsucker Proxy

5. Fargo

6. Raising Arizona

7. The Man Who Wasn’t There

8. No Country For Old Men

9. O Brother Where Art Thou?

10. True Grit

11. Burn After Reading

12. Barton Fink

13. Intolerable Cruelty

14. A Serious Man

15. Crimewave

16. The Ladykillers


To be honest – the first two are probably tied. Lebowski might be rewatchable but Crossing is their masterpiece.

The Ladykillers is about the only one I’m not even certain I’ll ever watch again. Ugh.

Yes, Crimewave counts, even if it’s directed by Raimi and not very good.

In my mind, Blood Simple is always a double bill with Blade Runner. I think it’s M Emmett Walsh.

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person who didn’t get Barton Fink. But then I see plenty of other people who don’t love it and I see it just isn’t for everyone.

The Hudsucker Proxy will always be inexplicably awesome in my book. I can watch that movie so much.

Fargo is actually that good. Go watch it again.

So is Raising Arizona.

What’s your list look like, put ’em in the comments or link me up.
