    It's at its best when young Barton Fink simply stares at a picture of a bathing beauty contemplating the ocean -- a Hollywood dream.

    Gnomic, claustrophobic, hallucinatory, just plain weird, it is the kind of movie critics can soak up thousands of words analyzing and cinephiles can soak up at least three espressos arguing their way through.

    Again the Coens take familiar movie tropes and twist them into something new. This may be their most haunting movie.

    Name user

    Scene after scene is filled with a ferocious strength and humor.

    Name user

    This creepy satire is full of laughs and flaky twists, but by the end you may still be scratching your head.

    Name user

    Somehow everything coheres, thanks to the Coens' superb writing and assured direction, and a roster of marvellous performances. The result works on numerous levels, thrilling the mind, ears and eyes, and racking the nerves.

    It's an exhilarating original.

    Partly hilarious, partly horrific, totally mesmerizing.

    5/5
    Name user

    A triumph for the offbeat, grimly funny brothers, it reveals in its mythic fashion the vagaries of the creative process that plague every artist.

    5/5
    Name user

    If Fink lacks cumulative punch, its fighting power is a technical knockout.

    3/5
    Name user

    It's an assured piece of comic filmmaking.
