Another great piece of cinematic art delivered by the Coens Brothers. This is the kind of movie that can have multiple possibilities of interpretation because of the amount of symbolisms that it contains.
It's great when I films keeps you thinking about what really happened and I took my own conclusion of the story but I believe that many others could have taken a different idea so I would be interested to hear what your interpretations might be... Did all of those things really happened to Barton? What did that last scene wanted to mean? Charlie really were a murderer?
John Turturro and John Goodman performances were great!
