:: Tuesday, November 04, 2003 ::

This weekend's "theater film" is the Coen Brothers' "Intolerable Cruelty" and although I wasn't keen on thinking this was going to be "Classic Coen" from the trailers, I give it an 7 of 10, bordering on 8. Both George Clooney and Catherine Zeta Jones are perfectly paired, and the biting Coen humor exists in all it's glory. Especially of note is Cedric the Entertainer as a private dick. The final scene is hilarious. "Cruelty" also has a perfect spit take by Clooney, and one of the best filmed jokes of the year, which I don't want to spoil by giving away. Prime Coen, somewhat below "Raising Arizona", and not in the league with "Miller's Crossing" or "Fargo" but much better, in my opinion, than "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou".
