The Coen Brothers


The Coen Brothers are the dynamic duo of filmmaking. As I watch and study more about the industry and watch documentaries and the Reelz Channel, I constantly come across the name "COEN". So, of course I had to find out what all of the excitement was about. Though its Monday and the focus is on Writers, The Coen Brothers, amongst many filmmakers, can be considered outstanding in multiple categories. Ethan and Joel are the Writers of one of my personal favorites: O Brother, Where Art Thou?, as well as the Academy's Best Motion Picture of the Year in 2008: No Country for Old Men. Their amazing writing (and more) talents are displayed in many other Motion Pictures, so be sure to check them out, and look forward to their many films to come.
