Any excuse to write about Fargo is a good thing. So, even though this 25-minute documentary about The Coen Brothers‘ classic has been online for a year and is available on the Blu-ray release, we haven’t posted it before and figured, who couldn’t use a little extra Marge Gunderson in their day? Darn tootin’. After the jump, check out Minnesota Nice, a documentary on the making of the 1996 Oscar winner. Read More »

An Education wasn’t Carey Mulligan‘s first film, but it’s the one that launched her to the top of every director’s wishlist. Since that coming-of-age tale opened in 2009, she’s been picking up one juicy role after another. This year saw her starring opposite Ryan Gosling in Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive and earning praise for her bold performance in Steve McQueen’s Shame, and she’s currently at work playing the ultimate girl who got away in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.
Now she’s lining up her next two jobs, and they sound every bit as promising as her previous gigs: the Coen Brothers‘ Inside Llewyn Davis, and an untitled Spike Jonze picture. More details after the jump.

Like so many film geeks, I’m an ardent admirer of the Coen Brothers (obviously), so I’m thrilled to reveal that a couple of interesting new tidbits have dropped about their next feature. Earlier this summer, the Coens revealed that their next movie would be based on the ’60s folk scene in New York’s Greenwich Village, and apparently that project is starting to come together. A recent announcement that StudioCanal would be co-financing and handling international sales for the film revealed the title, as well as slightly more detail about the plot.

Bowling shirts and bathrobes packed the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City Tuesday night for a cast reunion and screening of The Big Lebowski, in honor of the film’s limited edition Blu-ray release. On hand to discuss the beloved cult classic were musical archivist T-Bone Burnett and stars Jeff Bridges, John Turturro, Julianne Moore, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, each of whom walked on stage to thunderous applause and much yelling of quotes from the film.
Organized by Universal Studios Home Entertainment in conjunction with Lebowski Fest, the evening kicked off with a spirited Q&A hosted by Entertainment Weekly writer and Lebowski superfan Clark Collis before moving into a full-length screening of the cult classic. And yours truly was there in the middle of it all, guzzling watered-down White Russians and singing along to “The Man in Me” with the best of them. Check out video and higlights from the event after the jump. (Spoilers follow if you’ve never seen The Big Lebowski, although if you’ve never seen The Big Lebowski, I’m surprised you’re still reading.)

Quentin Tarantino and the Coen Brothers are, without a doubt, three of the most revered filmmakers working today. The release of a new film by Tarantino or the Coens insights a Pavlovian response in most film fans as each writer/director has such an incredibly high success rate, we’re almost guaranteed to see, at the very least, a good movie, if not a great one. Pulp Fiction, Fargo, Reservoir Dogs, The Big Lebowski, Inglourious Basterds, No Country for Old Men, the list goes on and on.
Spoke Art, the team behind the recent Wes Anderson-themed Bad Dads exhibit in San Francisco is traveling across country to New York for their next big film-themed art show based on that fact. Quentin vs. Coens will be open from April 7-April 9 at the Bold Hype Gallery in Manhattan and includes work from over 100 artists who have interpreted their favorite films and characters from the films of Quentin Tarantino or Joel and Ethan Coen.
Keep an eye on the site as we’ll soon have more exclusive images from show but, for now, check out the first set of images – including art from Tim Doyle (exclusive to /Film), Brandon Schaefer, Joshua Budich, Dave Perillo, Lloyd Stas and many others – plus all the pertinent info after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
If you’ve been to a movie theater in the past month or two (and if you are reading this site, you probably have) you’ve seen the teaser poster that Paramount released for The Coen Brothers’ True Grit, starring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld. It evoked an old west wanted poster, but outside of a few foreboding taglines, didn’t give us much information about the film.
We’re now just about a month away from the film’s December 22 release and the print campaign is heating up. There’s a cool international poster featuring the four leads together as well as a brand new set of character posters that individually showcase the awesome cast Joel and Ethan Coen have assembled for their adaptation of the 1968 Charles Portis novel (not the 1969 John Wayne film). Check out the full gallery after the jump. Read More »
