Intolerable Cruelty

Intolerable Cruelty ★★★★

Crazy how this film isn’t even in the discussion when it comes to the Coen’s best, yet throw this into most other directors filmography’s and it becomes their best film.

I was in absolute stitches laughing at the courtroom scene with Heinz the Baron Krauss von Espy. Obsessed with the poster and marketing behind the movie. Chuckling to myself thinking about how many people must’ve stuck this on expecting a by the numbers romantic comedy and had no idea the Coens were behind the scenes just undermining everything. 

Maybe that explains why such a brilliant film only has a 2.9 average rating on this site…
