Joel and Ethan Coen

Hosted by


Since 1984, writer-directors Joel and Ethan Coen (Blood Simple, Fargo, O Brother, Where Art Thou?) have taken the chase and made some of best films of the past decade about it. Their newest, an adaptation of Colmac McCarthy's No Country for Old Men, is a high-octane version of that. Start your engines!

Joel and Ethan discuss the adaptation of the novel and how the characters express themselves through actions rather than dialogue, how they pitched the movie as a "Bressonian western," and the "bloody wake" that's caused by the actions of the characters in their films.
