A collection of films from acclaimed Oscar-winning siblings Joel and Ethan Coen.
The Big Lebowski: The Dude, Jeff Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) is unemployed and laid-back. That is until he becomes a victim of mistaken identity, two thugs breaking into his apartment in the errant belief that they are accosting Jeff Lebowski the Pasadena millionaire. In hope of getting a replacement for soiled carpet, the Dude visits his wealthy namesake and, with buddy, ex `Nam' veteran, Walter (John Goodman), he is swept into a consequence comedy/thriller of extortion, embezzlement, sex, and dope...
The Hudsucker Proxy: Mailroom clerk Norville Barnes is a rube, a schmoe, a grade-A ding dong- just what Hudsucker Industries wants in a president! With him at the top, the stock will hit bottom... and the fat cats on the board can take over. But Norville (Tim Robbins) has his own spiffy little plan. And if a snoopy reporter (Jenifer Jason Leigh) doesn't put the kibosh on the Hudsucker flimflam and finagling big cheese Sidney J. Mussburger (Paul Newman) doesn't squash him, Norville's idea will put a smile on the hips of all America!
The Hudsucker Proxy will plaster a smile on you, too. With a nod to the rapid-fire movies of Frank Capra and Preston Sturges and lots of visual flair, filmmakers Joel and Ethen Coen (Fargo) craft a comic Hiyah Bub! To business success. You'll love the Hud! Not previously available on DVD!
Barton Fink: New York intellectual playwright Barton Fink moves to Hollywood to write a wrestling picture. Barton develops writers block and meets his neighbour, Charlie Meadows an insurance salesman with a secret. Not previously available on DVD!
Blood Simple: Deep in the heart of Texas, a jealous bar owner hires a private eye to kill his wife and her lover. The sleazy hitman double-crosses the husband, killing him instead and pocketing the cash. The perfect crime, or so it seems, but disposing of the corpse is not so simple. Blood Simple uncoils its film noir plot with audacious style, dense atmosphere and blood-curdling twists.
The razor-sharp debut of Oscar-nominated Joel and Ethan Coen will have you on the very edge of your seat.
