I will go into this as politely as I can. First, I am a devout Coen Brothers fan and have loved all of their work; however, this is the first movie I have viewed by them that was a disappointment. I understand about the curse and I found it funny that the writer/director focused the movie on the curse very little. The characters were believable and it had my attention from start to end, however, there was just something it desperately lacked. In many ways it didn't feel like a Coen Brothers movie and due to the many other great endeavors the brothers have achieved, this specific title just left a bad taste in my mouth. Perhaps it was the pace of the movie, maybe I was expecting another O Brother Where Art Thou or The Hudsucker Proxy, or maybe every genius is entitled to flop at one time or another, regardless I was entertained but left feeling senseless. I will give myself a few months and try this movie again but I sadly feel it will have the same results and I feel I'm forcing myself to like something that isn't my style.
