Director: Joel Coen
Cast: John Turturro, John Goodman, Judie Davis, Michael Lerner

An ambitious writer goes to Hollywood in the 1940s, but ends up writing a lowbrow wrestling movie. He hits a writer’s block, and the mysterious salesman next door certainly doesn’t help him to concentrate. The fourth film by the Coen brothers is probably their least accessible one. This is an odd and heavy-going but viaually impressive and strangely captivating film.
