The Coen brothers' Oscar-winning crime drama.

Macy) and two, hotheaded criminals (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare).

Huntingly photographed by Roger Deakins with great, expressive use of white-outs that sometimes make the characters appear to be moving through a dream.

To watch it is to experience steadily mounting delight, as you realize the filmmakers have taken enormous risks, gotten away with them and made a movie that is completely original, and as familiar as an old shoe.

Written and directed with the verve, painstaking nuance and outrageously black humour that have become the mainstay of a Coen movie.
