Coen Brothers Quotes By Andrew Dominik

Coen Brothers Quotes By Zack Snyder

I always say, I'm certain I changed 'Watchmen' less than the Coen brothers changed 'No Country for Old Men.' I'm certain of it. But you don't hear the Cormac McCarthy fans, like, up in arms about it. They should be. It's like an amazing Pulitzer Prize-winning book. — Zack Snyder

Making movies is never going to get better than working on a Coen brothers project. — Sam Elliott

Coen Brothers Quotes By Les Claypool

My heroes are guys like Frank Capra and Elia Kazan and Coen brothers and Terry Gilliam, more so than a lot of bass players at this point in my life. So I've always been an old-film nut and have very much enjoyed doing videos over the years. — Les Claypool

I feel like if you see five films not knowing who made them, you know which one is the Coen Brothers. — Hailee Steinfeld

Coen Brothers Quotes By Joe Carnahan

I guess I much prefer the path of the contrarian: the guy who goes against the grain a bit. The careers of the people who I admire deeply - like the Coen brothers and Soderbergh - don't repeat themselves, and they make radically different films at times, and I think that's wonderful. — Joe Carnahan

Coen Brothers Quotes By Timothy Simons

It's so odd because I don't even know if I'm cut out for it, but being a movie star guy, I sort of end up gravitating toward the Coen brothers.

Coen Brothers Quotes By Steve Buscemi

All these directors, and I would include the Coen brothers and Quentin, have a very unique vision of what they want. They listen to ideas and make people feel like everyone is making the film. — Steve Buscemi

Coen Brothers Quotes By Michel Hazanavicius

I watched a lot of silent directors who were absolutely great like John Ford and Fritz Lang, Tod Browning, and also some very modern directors like The Coen Brothers. The directors take the freedom within their own movies to be melodramatic or funny when they chose to be. They do whatever they want and they don't care about the genre. — Michel Hazanavicius

Coen Brothers Quotes By Angelina Jolie

The Coen brothers said something that helped me, When you put the book down, you have a certain feeling, a certain understanding. That's what they need to feel when they walk out of the theater. That's your job, to literally put this book on film, you won't make a good movie, you'll do no service to anyone. — Angelina Jolie

Coen Brothers Quotes By Martin Freeman

I am a fan of the Coen brothers. I'm not a fanatic. I'm a big admirer. They create unique worlds, and there is a real atmosphere to their films. Not everyone can get that. That's a massive part of their appeal: you can recognise them. Like all the great directors or artists, you know it when you see it. — Martin Freeman

Coen Brothers Quotes By Oscar Isaac

Every frame of a Coen brothers movie is filled with history and meaning, and the deeper you go, the deeper you get. That's why their movies stand up particularly well to repeated viewing and investigation. — Oscar Isaac

Coen Brothers Quotes By Eric Fellner

Coen Brothers Quotes By Rob Letterman

I don't think every movie should be in 3D. I hope the Coen brothers don't do their next movie in 3D. I don't think they have any plans to. — Rob Letterman

Coen Brothers Quotes By Scott Rudin

I have a big affinity for the Coen Brothers. — Scott Rudin

Nobody knows anybody. Not that well. — Gabriel Byrne

Coen Brothers Quotes By Francis Ford Coppola

In America, even the critics - which is a pity - tend to genre-ize things. They have a hard time when genres get mixed. They want to categorize things. That's why I love Wes Anderson's films and the Coen Brothers, because you don't know what you're going to get, and very often you get something that you don't expect and that's just what a genre's not supposed to do. — Francis Ford Coppola

Coen Brothers Quotes By Billy Bob Thornton

I always wished there was somebody like the Coen Brothers and they appeared. And so yeah, my favorite role that I've ever done was in The Man Who Wasn't There. That's my very favorite character I've ever played. — Billy Bob Thornton

I don't know of an actor that the Coen brothers would come to and say, "Hey, I've got a movie for you to be in, if you want to do it," that would say, "No." That's the truth. — George Clooney

Coen Brothers Quotes By Kevin McCloud

I like the absurd and the surreal: the Coen brothers, Bunuel, Kubrick. — Kevin McCloud
