    One thing's for sure about this raw provocation from the Coens: Like the music, the pain runs deep and true. You'll laugh till it hurts. show more

    The Coens, with this film, are like people who fly all the way to Paris on vacation and then eat at McDonalds every night, because that's what they know. Why bother making the trip at all? show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    As played by Oscar Isaac, he's snidely funny, world-weary and deeply sad. Though his story is enigmatic, the film itself is brilliantly acted, gorgeously shot and altogether captivating. show more

    It is like the trek for a self-published author who took 20 years to write his war story. The book ends up in a box in his tiny bedroom, squeezed in beside his over-sized bed, facing no pictures on the wall. It ends in a circle like some existential movies. At least it ends. A downer no doubt.

    Excellent movie but meant for East Coast markets that appreciate New York settings and character development. If you are looking for outrageous scenes like in Hustle and Wall Street, see somehing else. I thought it was one of the best of the year.
