"Hail, Caesar! by Yojimbo

A movie studio fixer joins forces with one of its stars to locate one of their biggest box office draws who has been kidnapped by communists.

Hail, Caesar! is the Coen brothers at their most playful and is both an affectionate homage to and parody of the Golden Age of Hollywood. It lovingly recreates some of its iconic genres while at the same time amusingly pricking its image of perfection with behind the scenes absurdity. The big name ensemble cast are all eminently watchable, including Josh Brolin as the proxy Noiresque gumshoe studio executive, Scarlett Johansson as a glamorous yet acerbic Brooklyn-accented starlet and Alden Ehrenreich as the goodnatured but talent devoid star of generic cowboy pictures. It all feels a little frivolous when compared to the Coen's best work but Hail...

Hail the Coen Brothers!

Hail Caesar is a light and fluffy love letter to the glamour of Hollywood showbiz during the 1950s, a time where studios were pumping money into epics, musicals, and westerns instead of superhero movies. The plot is essentially a series of vignettes highlighting both the hard work and the hijinks that ensued behind the scenes at that time. So laidback in its own warm nostalgia that the actual conflict doesn't start til halfway through the picture.
The cast is game for the fast talking dialogue and tongue in cheek humor. Josh Brolin is the moral center of an impressive ensemble of perfectionists, alcoholics, stuntmen, movie stars, and fifth columnists. Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, George Clooney, and Alden Ehrenreich do great. Johansson is near perfect as a classic platinum bombsh...

a movie that has no story - vanity filmaking

This movie has no proper story no proper end and seems like it was made just satisfy the writers and directors need to do some old skool movie scenes.
set around the move making of the 1950's george cloony plays a actor who is kidnapped by what turns out to be communists.
josh brolin plays the guy who fixes all the scandles and deals with all the problems with the stars and see's over the movie making business side, he is very good in this acting wise. but there is no more story to tell. it doesn't go anywhere. its just vanity film making , it looks good and the set pieces are cool but without a story its all pointless.
it ends and your left thinking why did they make it if not to just satisfy their own need to make some cool old time movie scenes.
there is humour in this but its sub...

Hollywood Theater


Es ist eine Weile her, seit die Coen Brüder eine reine Komödie inszeniert haben. Hail Caesar kommt nun wie ein Comic daher: Ziemlich klug gemacht, aber auch reichlich meschugge. Hail Caesar ist der heiterste Film, den die Coens je gedreht haben (obwohl alles mit einem gekreuzigten Jesus in einer katholischen Kirche beginnt). Wir befinden uns im Hollywood der 50er Jahre, jedenfalls irgendwann nach dem zweiten Weltkrieg und vor 1960. Erzählt werden 28 Stunden aus dem Leben von Studio-Chef Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin). Wir erleben die Produktion eines Sandalen-Films mit allen möglichen Problemen. Der Star DeeAnna Moran (Scarlett Johansson) ist unehelich schwanger, zwei Klatschreporterinnen (beide gespielt von Tilda Swinton) umschwirren das Idol Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) - am Ende wird ...

Minor Coen Brothers

'Hail, Caesar!' is minor Coen Brothers. We have a fully-loaded, star-studded cast making up an ensemble to accurately represent early 50's Hollywood. It's a clever send-up of moviemaking in that era; in front of, but mostly behind, the camera. If you know your Hollywood history, you are likely to understand more of the jokes. I enjoyed this aspect of the film greatly. Some memorable comedic moments had me laughing out loud, while others had me nodding in agreement with the sly wit. The comedy is very sporadic, though. The best scenes could almost be considered an assortment of sketches laid about a collective setting of time and place. We do have a main character with a goal, but everything around him feels like it's own little distraction. The flow of events are staggered throug...
