True Grit


true grit coen brothers

The Coens are masters.

Who else could take such a beloved film as True Grit, remake it and turn it into a sublime masterpiece? Sure, they’ll say they based it on the novel and not the John Wayne classic but it’s no easy task making a film that would surely engender obvious comparisons. Kudos to the Brothers Coen and Jeff Bridges who tops the old Duke with his own performance as the salty Rooster Cogburn. Amazing work.

A near-perfect movie and one I highly, heartily recommend. This, from a real fan of the Wayne version, too.

    Now, this may be “bold talk from a one-eyed fat man” but I think this is one of the few movie remakes that trump the iconic original: truly a must-see for anyone who appreciates a good western.

    I’ve seen the movie 5 times. I’m not even joking. I do not entertain hypotheticals. The world as it is is vexing enough.
