Intolerable Cruelty

Intolerable Cruelty ★★★★

I'm enjoying the Coen Brothers' work more and more as I make my way through their filmography (even if this is only directed by Joel!).

I went into this not knowing anything about the plot and I'm glad I did, because every twist came as a big surprise and I had no idea how it would end. Without any preconceptions I found the story brilliantly constructed and the script witty.

George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones are both excellent and they have a perfect chemistry that makes for a great rom-com.

It may not be a Coen Brothers' triumph and it certainly isn't as complex as their other work, but it's an easy and thoroughly enjoyable watch.
