There are certain questions every Coen Brothers’ fan should know the answer to.
Why is The Big Lebowski set during the 1991 Gulf War?
Why is Fargo called Fargo, when it is actually set in nearby Brainerd?
Where does the name O Brother Where Art Thou? come from?
Which non-Coen Brothers’ film starring Diane Keaton helped them get over a particularly nasty bout of writers’ block?
Which is their only remake? (Yes, there is only one!)
And so on…
Happily, all these questions and more are answered in Ian Nathan’s comprehensive and beautifully illustrated coffee table book which gives an invaluable insight into all of the nearly twenty films they have directed since 1984’s Blood Simple (not to mention, the many others such as Bad Santa and Bridge of Spies which they had a hand in).
Essential for Coen Brothers’ fanatics everywhere and strongly recommended for everyone else.
