A torture. Definitively not my kind of movie.
This was the only film of the Coen Brothers that I was still missing and again a great one!
This is an amazing film noir shooted in black and white in the most beautiful way, the light is perfect, it just looks gorgeous!
Tells the story about an emotionless baber, Ed Crane, that is amazingly played by Billy Bob Thornton. He discovers that his wife is cheating on him with her boss and decides to blackmail him ir order to raise money for an investment, but things didn't worked out as planed.
The atmosphere that The Coens wanted to create was totally succeeded we can definitely feel the melancholy that passes through some of the scenes. Beethoven's piano pieces as soundtrack are also another one of the great things in this film.
Another stunning contribution of the super talented Coen Brothers for the art of cinema.
Very nice soundtrack and very interesting plot
