At this point it's more notable when the Coen Brothers make a film that's disappointing than when they make an excellent one: the filmmakers have one of the highest hit rates in the business, and aside from a spotty period in the mid '00s, they've generally gone from great film to great film. That said, some of their most recent films I haven't entirely clicked with: "Burn After Reading" was fun, but feels minor in retrospect, while "True Grit" was uncharacteristically straightforward and old-fashioned in the context of some of their more gonzo affairs.
But as you might have heard, "Inside Llewyn Davis" [A] sees them right back on top again, with the film likely to settle into the top tier of their work.
