Read the entire series.

This is obviously part of an extensive series about exceptional films that you should have seen already. This time I take on some comedies.

As with all the mentioned movies these titles accomplished some surprising twists in their narratives. The draw of these films is in their stories, their DNA, their souls.

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

This epic movie takes a single anomaly and blows it up to indict an entire society. The lure of easy money drives a collection of otherwise sensible people to lose their minds in a race to grab the cash. I love this movie because of the many wacky personalities along the way and the feeling that simply anything can happen at any moment.

Hail, Caesar! – My Review

Lampooning old Hollywood, this is one of the more enoyable Coen Brothers films. They aren’t all so. I have a special affinity for this type of story, as I have done my own bit of Hollywood satire.

That said, I am noticing something about these guys. They have a tendency to turn everything into absurdism, nihilism, making fun of everything and everyone so that all are fools. What is it they actually believe in? This reminds me of those techno German nihilists in The Big Lebowski. “We believe in nothing!”

Hail Caesar doesn’t take itself too seriously. It does indict the old Hollywood studio system, a factory farm of entertainment product that no longer exists in that form.
