I officially forgive the Coen Brothers for Ladykillers.
Let’s see…this movie will be nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor/Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin (who’s having an amazing year).
So why didn’t I have it a full four stars? Because the ending is very anticlimactic. I understand why it ended that way but still, I was let down.
Without spoiling it, it’s like knowing three trains are on a collision course to destruction. Then all of the sudden, one train crashes out of nowhere but you don’t see it, only see the aftermath. One train keeps going while the other just stops and decides it isn’t worth chugging along anymore.
Confusing? See the movie.
