The discreet Mr. Cranein the night to Monday 00:15 6.October 2008 / WDR
A small but very fine contribution to the genre of film noir of director Joel Coen, who together with his brother Ethan wrote the script. Billy Bob Thornton gives the lethargic Barber Ed Crane, who with his wife (Frances McDormand) and the brother-in-law (Michael Badalucco) end of the 40-years in a sleepy town is alive. With the monotony in marriage and career, it's over, as Ed discovered his criminal energy and the lover of his wife (James Gandolfini) to money for a more or less brilliant idea of blackmailing business. Peppered with bizarre twists and crazy ideas, the drama thriller a real pleasure. And by the exquisitely composed images of cinematographer Roger A. Deakins also a cinematic delight.
