character flaw #6

overthinking causes paralysis of action.


an enthusiast

i certainly didn't need the man who wasn't there to convince me that joel and ethan coen were geniuses. roger deakins' profession of admiration for them in his interview on the dvd is great: he's confident enough in their ability to make it good that he'd be willing to shoot the phone book for them. i'd watch that. billy bob thornton's performance was great. heck, every performance was great. it's a quiet, bittersweet film, and i'd highly recommend it. (but don't go in expecting the wackiness of raising arizona or the big lebowski, or you'll be disappointed.)

it also reminded me of going to the barber with my dad. do those places even exist any more? it seems like it's all supercuts and hair salons these days.
