Hail, Caesar! [Feb. 5th, 2016|03:26 am]
Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)

Kind of a goofy hodge-podge of a movie, excellently done.  I think the Coens wanted to direct a full-on Gene-Kelly-style song and dance number and an Ester Williams water ballet fantasy and a shoot 'em up singing cowboy "oater" and a Cecil B. DeMille biblical epic.  So they did.  And mooshed them all together into a loosely rambling period comedy.  It's cool.  It's funny.  It is and it isn't a masterpiece.  Actually, the disparate pieces are masterpieces in their own rights, the resulting collage probably isn't, but it's really fun.  Go see it.
