The Coen brothers have seemingly captured Hollywood without compromise. Director/screenwriter Joel and producer/screenwriter Ethan made their first film in 1985, Blood Simple, the chilling Texan film noir. Raising Arizona and Fargo followed soon after, as well as their more modern creations, No Country For Old Men and A Serious Man testament to the Coen brothers unfailing ability to deliver visually and verbally inventive, exciting films that keep their fans on tenterhooks waiting for their next movie. Joel and Ethan Coen: Blood Siblings is the first book to collect the best interviews, articles and reviews on the Coen brothers movies. This is the second title in the Ultrascreen series.
