Pocket Essential seriesJoel and Ethan Coen [Rev Upded.]1904048390, 9781904048398
Description:Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. Applying a quintessentially British mix of dry wit and black humor to all their work from the impossibly noir Blood Simple to the wonderful The Big Lebowski, Joel and Ethan Coen have crafted often hysterically funny, startlingly unpredictable, and surprisingly moving reworkings of the crime genre. In this book, Cheshire and Ashbrook tackle recurrent themes including family, dreams, religion, and references to the work of Stanley Kubrick with dry wit and erudition.
