Dude, It's a Coen Brothers Retrospective
It's screening everything from 'The Big Lebowski' and 'Fargo' to 'No Country for Old Men' and 'Inside Llewyn Davis'.
Picking your favourite Coen brothers-directed movie is like choosing which of your pets you love most. It's tricky, bordering on impossible, and it's a task that no one should willingly take up. Also difficult: selecting which of the filmmaking siblings' flicks to go see on the big screen at Melbourne's aptly titled Dude, It's a Coen Brothers Retrospective screening series.
All cinephiles should abide with this lengthy season, which is taking place at the Lido, Classic and Cameo cinemas from Friday, January 15–Thursday, June 3. After kicking off with Fargo, a different movie will play each week from Thursday, February 4 — and, as far as picking what to watch goes, you're spoiled for choice. On the bill is everything from Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski to No Country for Old Men and Inside Llewyn Davis.
That means you can laugh at Nicolas Cage, crave white russians, watch multiple Oscar-winning flicks, and listen to Oscar Isaac croon folk tunes while taking care of a cat — and work your way through the likes of Blood Simple, Barton Fink, Burn After Reading and Hail, Caesar!, too. And if you haven't ever seen the glorious O Brother, Where Art Thou? on a big screen, that's something we definitely recommend fixing during the 18-title retro season.
