Taste: Of Cinema: 10 Great Movies to Watch If You Like the Coen Brothers (+ All Films Mentioned)

"The Coens are the archetypal geniuses who never settle for anything but have their eyes always set on the next project, which is aimed at tackling the previous one. This urge for constant transformation of one's own work in symptomatic of a great and unsettling creative mind that is never satisfied with the achievement of its artistic brainstorm. It seems that with such a resume, it's really hard for someone to replicate them or come close to the originality that they have in their magical auteur film style. However, the way they tell the stories, humor, and storytelling is often inspired by other great movies that have a similar sense for the absurd condition of the human characteristics.
This list contains some older and newer titles that have come close to imitating some of the Coens' tropes; each in their own right are a great movie, but all contain some of that good old Coen-esque touch. Here is a list of 10 of these that I think everyone who is a Coen fan can enjoy."
