Barton Fink 
Barton Fink review
3.5/4 stars

A pictured considered being film noir, a horror film, political satire and buddy flick mixed with elements of dark comedy. Barton Fink (John Turturro) was asked by Capitol Pictures head Jack Lipnick (Michael Lerner) write for a wrestling picture. His neighbor Charlie Meadows (John Goodman) sells insurance and pops in and out of his place. Barton asks assistance from Audrey Taylor (Judy Davis), the partner of skilled writer William Preston (W.P.) "Bill" Mayhew (John Mahoney), since he has ran out of ideas and time. Direction was exception with a myriad of camera angles and movements. Setting was eerie and dialogue so innovative. Fantastic screenplay evident from various characters: “We need more heart in motion pictures.” “Life is too short.” Barton – “We’re all alone in the world.” Charlie/Karl Mundt – "Madman Mundt" – “People can be rude…people can be cruel” “Everyone wants quality.” Exceptional performances from Goodman, Lerner and especially Turturro were displayed. Soundtrack was perfect. Only reservation this reviewer had were the minute role of Chet (Buschemi’s character), how the murder of Audrey occurred and its mind boggling conclusion whether it was a dream or not. As like many Coen films, it had several themes such as pressures of Hollywood, writing, friendship with a total stranger, cruelty, Broadway, ego, ignorance and trust. Barton Fink starts slow then builds-up because it makes you follow the mind of the main character. A movie that can be analyzed and enjoyed with repeat viewings.
