Aroview: A humdinger debut from the Coen Brothers, who teasingly draw out the sinister activities of shady activities of shady rednecks before nailing things up in an unforgettable climax.
Sundance - Grand Jury Prize (Dramatic)
Average rating (Exceptional). Showing 1-3 of 3 member reviews.
4 stars (Very Good) Sinister, although a little slow to get started, this is pure Coen script, with country town villains, murder mystery, suspense, and a thrilling climactic sequence. ~Tom H
5 stars (Exceptional) A scorching debut from the Coens, full of colourful characters, suspenseful mystery and sinister humour. ~Wizzums
5 stars (Exceptional) Possibly the best modern noir. Carter Burwell brilliantly incorporates environmental sounds into the score. If the characters would only stop and discuss things all the unpleasantness could be avoided. But they don't... ~HiFi
