This was a really great film. It is a drama about a quiet man's life. The performances were awesome and the style of the film was nicely done, reminded me a bit of the Sky Captain movie. It was beautifully filmed in black and white and set in the 1940-50 time period. It is another really amazing film by the Coen brothers (who also did Raising Arizona, Fargo, The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Are Thou, The Ladykillers, and many others). I was captivated the whole time.
