The Coen Brothers are two of my favorite filmmakers in the business today. While far from the best, Raising Arizona will always be my favorite Coen Brothers movie, and one of my favorites period. My extended family quotes the movie so often, I may have the whole thing memorized.

Unfortunately, I have never actually watched The Big Lebowski, but it's on my queue. Best is probably, No Country for Old Men, but I'll hold off for a bit.

I've only seen two films on that list and I will say one thing...

If anyone, ANYONE, says Burn After Reading I will punt a box full of kittens into a volcano. I was dragged to that piece of shit, all the time being told "It is the Coen Brothers. It's cannot be bad." I have to say, that kinda put me off from checking out any of their other films.

Eff, I dunno. Favorite? Probably The Big Lebowski, it's shallow, but it's one of my favorite films of all time.

Best? That's hard, Fargo is up there. No Country for Old Men, too. I'm gonna go with True Grit, for the scenery porn and the work of Hailey Steinfeld.

At the risk of making enemies, I have to admit that I'm not too keen on the Coen Brothers from what I've seen by them.

I still need to see The Big Lebowski, but for now I have to give Fargo the nod for favorite and best. I sorta liked Miller's Crossing, was ho-hum about True Grit, dislike No Country for its ending (though that's probably Cormac McCarthy's fault more than the Coen Brothers'), and though it has some good performances, I think O Brother is a fucking mess.
