Twists and Turns: The Coen Brothers’ Cinematic Routes

Ellen Cheshire | 2024 | 100 MINS
Film Talk

Ethan Coen’s first solo film as director ‘Drive-Away Dolls’ hits the screen this month and this talk will look back at the careers of arguably the greatest sibling filmmakers of all time.

In Detail

Embark on an exhilarating journey through the captivating filmography of the Coen Brothers with film writer and lecturer, Ellen Cheshire (whose co-written book on the Coens went into its third edition).

Traverse the winding highways of Joel and Ethan’s illustrious career, where dark humour, idiosyncratic detours, and unforgettable road trips intersect.

From the gritty noir of ‘Blood Simple’ to the zany escapades of ‘Raising Arizona’, and from the snow-covered plains of ‘Fargo’ to the melodic pathways of ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ and ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ (also screening this season), each cinematic excursion unveils a new layer of storytelling mastery.

Then, take an unexpected turn to explore their solo projects, including Joel’s adaptation of the Shakespearean tragedy ‘Macbeth’ and Ethan’s latest comedy road movie, ‘Drive-Away Dolls’. Join us on this exploration of laughter, despair, and the unmistakable mark the Coens have left on the cinematic map.
