Ronald Bergan - The Coen Brothers (2nd Hand Hardback)
Blood Simple, Barton Fink, Raising Arizona, Miller's Crossing, Fargo, Hudsucker Proxy, and The Big Lebowski - moviegoers either love the Coen brothers or they hate them.
Those who love them believe they have made some of the most innovative, entertaining, and idiosyncratic films of the last 25 years.
Their movies have grossed over 1 billion, and Fargo won Oscars in 1997 for Best Original Screenplay and Best Actress.
Brought up in small-town America, the brothers have been making movies from the age of eight. Joel directs; Ethan writes and collaborates with his brother in the later stages as the story develops its visual identity.
The Coen Brothers set the standard for creative cinema.

"Bergen makes many perceptive comments about the Coen's style, influences, themes, etc. It's a gold mine for me as a young filmmaker in thinking more deeply about my favourite contemporary artists."
"Fascinating look into how two brothers who know and understand each other approach movie making. Much differently that the “normal” Hollywood process. The brothers write the scrip, produce, and direct their movies. They also tend to use many of the same actors and actresses from movie to movie, and mostly the same crew, camera person, and editors. The result is a movie that turns out as they intended it." - Goodreads Reviews.
Ronald Bergan was a British film historian, critic, and regular contributor to the Guardian newspaper. He has authored many critically acclaimed books on film, including the biographies of directors such as Francis Coppola, Jean Renoir, Sergei Eisenstein, and the Coen brothers.
