- Fargo (1996) Fargo is elemental. There's good, there's evil, and then there's the Earth, dusted white, dying to be splattered with blood. Like all great Coen brothers movies, the "snow-oir" kicks off with an idiotic decision: Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) hires two hitmen, Carl (Steve Buscemi) and Gaear (Peter Stormare), to kidnap his wife.
- Raising Arizona (1987) "That night I had a dream..." In its closing moments, Raising Arizona takes on a deeply philosophical bent: what if we have alternate selves who live different lives?
- Miller's Crossing (1990) The images linger: the forest, the leaves, the hat, the tommy gun, the robe, the pencil-thin mustache, the hands raised in defense.
- No Country for Old Men (2007) Like a blast from Anton Chigurh's cattle gun, No Country for Old Men came out of nowhere. In 2007, following a four-picture run of lesser works that ended with semi-clunkers Intolerable Cruelty and The Ladykillers, it seemed like the Coens had lost a step, sinking into an era of gentle self-parody.
The Coen Brothers (Joel and Ethan) are some of the greatest directors of the modern era (1980's and later). Each of their films have a particular quality about them to where you know if you are hearing Coen brothers dialogue or seeing iconic Coen brothers actors.

- NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN (2007) Screenplay by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy. Starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Woody Harrelson, Kelly Macdonald, Garrett Dillahunt, Tess Harper, Barry Corbin, Stephen Root, Rodger Boyce, Beth Grant.

- BLOOD SIMPLE (1984) Written by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. Starring John Getz, Frances McDormand, Dan Hedaya, Samm-Art Williams, M. Emmet Walsh. The Coens made their feature debut with this twisting, violent, darkly comic thriller.
- Fargo. No film better signifies the power and prevailing uniqueness of the Coenesque as thoroughly as Fargo. Roger Ebert famously said that Fargo was "one of the best films" he'd ever seen as well as a reminder as to why he loved film in the first place.
- No Country for Old Men. The work of Cormac McCarthy is notoriously difficult to adapt, but the Coens made it seem almost pathetically easy with No Country For Old Men.
- Barton Fink. The Coen brothers utterly dominated the 1991 Cannes Film Festival with Barton Fink. The movie no only won the top prize, the Palme d'Or, but swept the major awards for Best Actor and Best Director, something that almost never happens and is actively discouraged by the festival.
- A Serious Man. Following the big stars and box office prowess of Burn After Reading, 2009's A Serious Man felt like the Coens were taking a break to make a movie for themselves and nobody else.
