Music, money and masculinity: a q gateway to the Coen brothers
In this q gateway to the Coen brothers, film critic Adam Nayman takes a look at two of the most lauded directors in modern cinema, and breaks down three of the themes that have come to define their eccentric and wildly entertaining body of work. Those themes are music, money and masculinity.
The Coen brothers' latest film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs drops on Netflix this week, and Nayman has written a new book called The Coen Brothers: This Book Really Ties the Films Together. It's full of photos, interviews and thoughtful essays about the universe the Coens have created.
Tomorrow on q, catch Tim Blake Nelson, the star of O Brother, Where Art Thou? and the title character in the Coen brothers' new film.
