Man Who Wasn't There
didn't think the Coen brothers could do better than Fargo
(see below), and when a friend told me this was better than that
great film, I admit I was skeptical. However, it is better than Fargo.
It is very different, not so thick with the Coen brothers' distinctive
black humour, but The
Man Who Wasn't There is a stunning movie in terms of both its
moving storyline and as an example of the film-making art. Beautiful.
Inspirational. Buy it.

wonderful black comedy about a kidnapping that goes wrong as a
bungling, small town car salesman has his wife snatched by two
out-of-town killers in order to get a million dollar ransom from her
rich farther. Understated, dark, yet supremely funny, this is one not
to be missed.
do you mean, "but it's a kids' film"? Lighten up, for
goodness sake. It's fabulous — enjoy it (worth buying for Mike's
New Car alone!)
is a wonderful film, even better than Monsters, Inc, in fact. It is a
kids' film, but there's more than enough subtle jokes and references
in there for the adults to ensure that repeated viewings never become
a bind. Easily on a par with Toy Story 2. Maybe even better.
