About the book:
For the first time ever, fans will have access to the definitive guide on the filmography of the Academy Award–winning creators the Coen brothers. From such cult hits as Raising Arizona (1987) and The Big Lebowski (1998) to major critical darlings Fargo (1996), No Country for Old Men (2007), and Inside Llewyn Davis (2013), Ethan and Joel Coen have cultivated a bleakly comical, instantly recognizable voice in modern American cinema. In The Coen Brothers: This Book Really Ties the Films Together, film critic Adam Nayman carefully sifts through their complex cinematic universe in an effort to plot, as he puts it, "some Grand Unified Theory of Coen-ness."
The book combines critical text—biography, close film analyses, and enlightening interviews with key Coen collaborators including cinematographer Roger Deakins, costume designer Mary Zophres, and composer Carter Burwell—with a visual aesthetic that honors the Coens' singular mix of darkness and levity. The book itself has a visually stunning package and is produced by popular indie film magazine Little White Lies.
Featuring film stills, punchy infographics, and hard insight, this book will be the definitive exploration of the Coen brothers' oeuvre and a must-have keepsake for fans.
