Hey, do you enjoy movies directed by the Coen Brothers? I sure do. Fargo, No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading; Love love love. Here is the thing though, about the Coen Brothers movies: when you try to explain the plot, they just take too fucking long to talk about. It is better to just go see them, if you are a fan at all. So, instead of writing a proper review, which would take me most of the remaining days of my life, I am just going to offer up a fun Top Ten List of stuff I liked about Hail Caesar!, a preview of which I saw earlier this week, and which you might like as well.

For just 3 short days late next week, Spoke Art will present Quentin vs. Coen – An art show tribute to the films of Quentin Tarantino and the Coen Brothers. This exhibit is a follow-up to last year’s highly successful Bad Dads – a tribute to Wes Anderson. I’m sorry I missed that. For Quentin vs. Coen, Spoke Art has arranged a battle-royal style art show featuring over 100 world class artists from the new contemporary art scene. Painters, screen printers and digital artists were invited to submit reinterpretations of their favorite scenes, characters and films from these much lauded directors, resulting in an eclectic showing of inspirational fine art. From the previews I’ve seen online, it looks like there will be some mind-blowing art to enjoy!
The show opens on Thursday, April 7th 2011 at NYC’s Bold Hype Gallery and will be on view only until Saturday, April 9th – so if you snooze you definitely lose on this one. Opening night (reception 6:00 – 9:00 PM) will feature a costume contest (Dude, “The Dude”!) and complimentary “Caucasian” cocktails (i.e. White Russians). I’m there already!
Bold Hype Gallery is located at 547 W 27th Street (Between 10th and 11th Aves), New York, NY 10001
