My review of the Coens brothers’ True Grit is up at Playtime. I wrote the first draft in early January, and by sheer coincidence, Glenn Kenny put up a post earlier today about Raising Arizona, which spurred some commenters to make observations about the Coens’ approach to their characters that are eerily similar to those that I make in my review. I immodestly and recklessly submit this as irrefutable evidence that my opinions on the Coens have been validated in full. Happy birthday to me!
