I'll be watching and reviewing it once it comes out nationwide on Nov 21st.

It's being compared very favorably to "Fargo" (actually, it's being rated as better), which I have listed as the best movie of 1996 in my book.

Saw it saturday. It is either an amazing movie, or a pretty good movie. Worth $8 dollars, especially if you are a Cohen Bros fan. I need to watch it again to make the final decision, but I would recommend it.

Excited to see this one (previews look great), even though I'm not a huge Coen Bros fan. Fargo, Big Lebowski were good movies from the mid 90s, but nothing else they've done stands out for me.

Movies like Raising Arizona and O, Brother Where Art Thou were films that were praised by critics ... but I just didn't care for em.

And Intolerable Cruelty? Explain that one.

Saw it 2 weeks ago and this take is dead on.

I'm still not sure if I was blown away or let down. Absolutely a movie that needs to be watched twice.

I'll say this, I left the theater more impressed by Gone Baby Gone, but I cannot say which is better until I give this one another shot.
