Writer’s block is no laughing matter. Tell that to the Coen brothers.
Dir Joel Coen
With John Turturro, John Goodman, Judy Davis
In 1941, newly successful Broadway bard Barton Fink moves into a Hollywood hotel to write a movie for Capitol Studios, trusting to his obsession with the ‘common man’ and the life of the mind. But art and life differ... The Coens’ wry, funny and finally scary look at a naively idealistic writer’s lot blends genres to create a truly inventive and perceptive portrait of the old studio system.
