This Coen Brothers Supercut Showcases Their Distinct Style

Anna Green

Directors Joel and Ethan Coen are known for their deadpan humor and distinct visual stylings. While their films take place across America—from sunny Southern California to frozen Minnesota to 1960s New York City to the dusty roads of the Depression-era South and beyond—they're all tied together by many of the same distinct themes and motifs.

In honor of the release of their latest film, Hail, Caesar!, Vimeo user somersetVII created a comprehensive Coen supercut, which spans more than 30 years and 16 films. Drawing connections between their earliest films and their most recent, the video serves as both a crash course in the Coen brothers’ oeuvre as well as a thoroughly amusing tribute to their work. Check it out above.
