      I haven't seen all directed by them. From the few I have seen,

      it is "No Country For Old men"

    I haven't seen all of them, but from those that I've seen, I'm going with Fargo. When it first came out, it was so out there, no one had seen a movie quite like that.

    They made many great movie.
    - No Country For Old Men
    - Miller's Crossing
    - Fargo
    - O Brother Where Art Thou?
    - Intolerable Cruelty
    These only a few of them.
    "O Brother Where Art Thou?" and "Intolerable Cruelty" are George Clooney funniest movies.

      I'm glad you mentioned Miller's Crossing...That's a movie I can see over and over again... And the lingo in it is addictive....

    O Brother Where Art Thou? and Raising Arizona.
    Both of them had parts that made me laugh until I had tears in my eyes.
    But the Cohens aren't just funny, they virtually own surreal.

      Agreed! They seem to have their way with our emotions! From scary to ridiculous to just plain awe. Love the Coen Brothers...but of course you knew that....

    O Brother Where Art Thou is just wonderful - worth seeing the concert film based on the soundtrack too, called Down From The Mountain, also produced by the Coens

      I think I would enjoy that. The music was like another character in that film...

    Raising Arizona and The Hudsucker Proxy for me! i seem to like the more light hearted side of the Coen brothers.

      Thanks for mentioning Hudsucker Proxy! I don't think it gets the props it deserves! Some great performances in this movie, especially Jennifer Jason Leigh. Great stylized movie.
