A masterpiece of surrealism
The Coen-movie I liked best was “Raising Arizona”. But being realisic, I know that “Miller’s Crossing” and “Barton Fink” were better. There is so much inside and behind this movie, it’s impossible to refer to every single detail. John Turturro has never given a better performance than here, as arrogant, too ambitious author Barton Fink. John Goodman also plays his role for a lifetime. And of course, Michael Lerner was nominated for an Academy Award. The reason why he still is no star is that he didn’t act in any other Coen-brothers-movie. It’s a fact that with their direction actors reach their climax.
Some of my friends who saw this film disliked it because they didn’t understand the plot. Well, this is not a movie for people who need instructions how to handle a film. You have to think, to guess what all the symbols mean, what the ending means. Whatever you’ll guess it can’t be completely wrong because a real masterpiece like this offers many possibilities for interpretation.
The Emperor’s New Clothes
I cannot believe that there isn’t a single negative comment on here about this film. I like odd films. I even like the Coen Brothers. But this movie was a waste of time. Those who like it, I think, may be suffering from a case of “The Emperor’s New Clothes…”… ie “If I find depth in this film I can establish my intelligence.” No one dares call out, like the little boy in the crowd who declares the emperor is naked- “this film was a mess!” I like films with symbolism. But this film was full of ambiguous symbolism. It reminds me of people at my church that can make symbolism out of everything… twist it to be whatever best supports their mood. If you are looking for something to twist, to mull over then this film is for you. By the end of the film, you don’t know if ANY of the characters were real. And you’ll never know. There is no fight-club-ish moment of truth that makes you want to rewatch the film. This was the least satisfying mind-job I’ve ever had. If you want to feel smart and insightful, then watch this movie. I would recommend fast forwarding over any part where a single violin can be heard. Don’t slow it down til dialogue resumes. As a matter of fact, fast forward over the whole film. Watch some flies buzz around and make some symbolism out of that. It would be just as productive.
