Huntingly photographed by Roger Deakins with great, expressive use of white-outs that sometimes make the characters appear to be moving through a dream.

Written and directed with the verve, painstaking nuance and outrageously black humour that have become the mainstay of a Coen movie.

The beauty of the film is in the subtle detail of the dialogue and performances which continue to enchant on repeat viewings.
