It's hard to be a creative person in this crazy world. As, it seems, would simply be to write a few thousand words and to stop. But that's only if you're really talented, you will prevent lots of small, seemingly problems. And the main problem is your awkward, chaotic inner world.

So I perceive this film. It is unnecessary to speak here about great directing, the cast and originality of all events, etc as it is already a universally recognized fact.

Here's what would like note the versatility of the film. It cannot be taken only as something strange, obscure, overcast. This one of those films that make the viewer a little more sane. When you turn in their business and worries, sometimes it's such a strange moment when you already don't understand why you early treated properly to what is happening, such a familiar and at the same time absolutely insane. And this is only one subjective line.

Yes, but if you do you love otvoriti, draw or write, yeah still something gloomy, then this movie is nothing else brings grim inspiration (not even after viewing, and somewhere closer to the beginning).

Barton Fink (Barton Fink) 1991 with John Turturro — 4th picture of the brothers that may be in my list of the best films of Cohen.

The film itself is about writer, a lot of films, but this clearly stands out from them.

About the plot: Barton Fink (Turturro) won #NewYork their mental plays about ordinary people. Now he have to write the movie the requirement of the sharks of Hollywood. But the guy doesn't have experience connections, no friends only talent.

Excellent acting ++ cool secondary characters and their dialogues. They charismatic played his part well and convincing. I understand clearly what role at or a character and about what truths he I go on and on. Colonel Lipnik of the Minsk, detectives, neighbor Charlie — all I loved it. Again lit up Steve Buscemi, but only a few episodes.

The at least the first part of the film will seem boring and uninteresting. Steps around Barton happen smoothly and slowly, without dynamics courage. Some scenes can frankly piss off. Have a bad caste of actors (the wife of writer bill). Such a narrative is necessary to get acquainted with Barton, his world, pain and show all the complexity of the main tests in his life. If not turn off the movie, then will face as of which jaw droop and linger breath. This is the handwriting of the brothers and is the first the movie where they make fun of very much and twist the plot so too, interesting. This movie and interesting, although its history is as simple as the world.

Good movie, but not drawn to me all yelled in his ears "look, look" as I do it with "Group a band-aid".

You can watch if you like films about writers, the Coen brothers, Turturro not like formalism and those who does not for the soul and for eyes.

The moral is: stay who you are, no matter what.

The plot of this film is quite simple. Famous new York playwright Barton Fink (John Turturro), whose last play was a pretty decent success, I invite you to work in world decent pay that before he not dreaming. After some doubts he still accepts is in cheap Los Angeles hotel where through the thin walls and pipeline heard that occurs in the next room, and sad Wallpaper then and it wants to come off, not from heat, not the devil knows what! But these terms the writer chooses, so to tell me to fully enjoy the life of common people. Here Barton intends to write a do not a work of genius.

However, as you guessed it, in Hollywood not invited to it gave a new hamlet or Gone with the wind. Not at all! Influential impresario just needs a picture of the wrestlers. No, not about the fighters for justice or the freedom of the black people of America, and those the wrestlers who wear tight leotards and all my dreams reduced to only to put the opponent on both blades. It should be noted, such order Fink not expected. And then, of course, went incredible anguish Barton on about coming to work and what kind of depth you can invest in the story of the fat man in tights. In the course of the torments the hero will meet with its neighbor Charlie meadows (John Goodman), with the drunken writer William Matthew and his assistant Audrey. And from the satirical drama the story will turn into a surreal parable.

This I liked the movie tremendously. I did not see a lengthy nor the boredom of the first half, which, he said, many watched a movie. Subtle psychological, satirical and philosophical, the film covers not only the theme of visible surface. Here, as said Lebowski, "a lot of underwater rocks and currents." As the waves breaking on the stone, gifted young writers are divided on the machine "Hollywood." In this movie, on my opinion, each episode, each character is very important and accurate. The painting itself is incredibly versatile and complex.

How the actors are, and words difficult to find. Turturro and Goodman — it's aerobatics. Colorful even the episodic characters (Steve Buscemi, Tony Shalhoub).

Hardly anything we should this painting, it definitely need to watch because it is a film for all times. For me — the best film the Coen. Well, one of the three best. Another — "Miller's crossing", "Old men not a place." Although I about "blood Simple forgot." And "the Big Lebowski". In General, one of five of the best films of the Coen brothers..
