Creator: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
Year: 2010

What’s amazing with this film, is that I had no desire to see it, since I’m not a fan of Westerns. I also never saw the original and just the thought of The Dude playing a John Wayne role seemed strange. But hand it to the Coen brothers. I don’t think they could ever make a bad film (although Burn After Reading was pretty bad).

Hailee Steinfeld deserves the Oscar. Her performance was incredible, given that she’s only 14 and this was her first film. Frankly, this film was all about her and less so about Jeff Bridges. And I’m quite surprised that Josh Brolin got his name in the poster, given that he was only in the film for such a short time.

But to have me rate this as a 5-star film and that it’s a Western, you know it’s really good. One of my favorite films of the year.
