Barton Fink

Barton Fink ★★★★

A very thought provoking period piece by the Coens. It's their most confusing narrative but it's very engaging. Both the Johns deliver marvelous performances along with the supporting cast. The dialogue is so, so tight and the screenplay is great. The symbolisms, the metaphors and the usual dash of surrealism by the Coens are all present here. The production design is another wonderful and clever technical aspect of the film if you are able to understand the symbolism

So, 4/5
