    Let's make this a place to discuss the films of the Coens as well. I'll probably edit this post later to add a picture or something.

    The Hudsucker Proxy is a masterpiece imo. It's my favorite film of theirs, followed by The Big Lebowski, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, A Serious Man and Raising Arizona.

    It's the version of Barton Fink with George Clinton replacing John Turturro.

    I don't know if I want to participate in that poll because I have not seen most of those films yet, however out of what I have seen my favorite might be a tie between The Big Lebowski and A Serious Man. Honestly, I don't think I could pick between the two of them, they're both really fantastic stuff. I didn't like The Big Lebowski that much the first time I saw it but it has definitely grown on me.

    Those probably are my two favourites followed by O Brother. There's a few films I haven't seen, that I really need to see (a few of their ones) but I'm confident the Big Lebowski would remain my top choice.

    I honestly cannot begin to pick between Barton Fink, Fargo and A Serious Man.

    Before I decide I should probably at least see Burn After Reading, Hudsucker Proxy and O Brother, Where Art Thou from beginning to end in proper order.

    Real answer: Fargo

    Answer I would like to give because I know no one else will pick it and it deserves some recognition goddamnit: The Man Who Wasn't There

    Wow, picking a favorite Coen Brothers movie is like picking a favorite child. They're all great in different ways, though The Ladykillers is probably the red-headed stepchild of the group.

    Yeah, I haven't seen all of these yet, but I voted anyway because I can cancel my vote? The best from the ones I saw was No Country for Old Men. For reference I have seen: Raising Arizona, Fargo, The Big Lebowski, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, No Country For Old Men, Burn After Reading, True Grit

    1. No Country for Old Men
    2. Miller's Crossing
    3. The Big Lebowski
    4. Fargo
    5. True Grit
    6. A Serious Man
    7. Barton Fink
    8. The Hudsucker Proxy
    9. Blood Simple
    10. O, Brother, Where Art Thou?
    11. Raising Arizona
    12. The Ladykillers
    13. Fucking Burn After Fucking Reading.


    Haven't seen the rest. Fun fact: Blood Simple was remade recently into a slapstick comedy set in Medieval China. No, I don't get it either.
