Coen brothers

Ethan (left) and Joel Coen, at the [[2015 Cannes Film Festival]] Joel Daniel Coen (born November 29, 1954) and Ethan Jesse Coen (born September 21, 1957), together known as the Coen brothers ( ), are an American filmmaking duo. Their films span many genres and styles, which they frequently subvert or parody. Their most acclaimed works include ''Blood Simple'' (1984), ''Raising Arizona'' (1987), ''Miller's Crossing'' (1990), ''Barton Fink'' (1991), ''Fargo'' (1996), ''The Big Lebowski'' (1998), ''O Brother, Where Art Thou?'' (2000), ''No Country for Old Men'' (2007), ''A Serious Man'' (2009), ''True Grit'' (2010) and ''Inside Llewyn Davis'' (2013). Many of their films are distinctly American, often examining the culture of the American South and American West in both modern and historical contexts.

The brothers generally write, direct and produce their films jointly, although due to DGA regulations, Joel received sole directing credit while Ethan received sole production credit until ''The Ladykillers'' (2004), from which point on they would be credited together as directors and producers; they also shared editing credits under the alias Roderick Jaynes. The duo started directing separately in the 2020s, resulting in Joel's ''The Tragedy of Macbeth'' (2021) and Ethan's ''Jerry Lee Lewis: Trouble in Mind'' (2022) and ''Drive-Away Dolls'' (2024). They have been nominated for 13 Academy Awards together, plus one individual nomination for each; both won Best Original Screenplay for ''Fargo'', and Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay for ''No Country for Old Men''. The duo also won the for ''Barton Fink'' at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival.

The Coens have written a number of films they did not direct, including Angelina Jolie's biographical war drama ''Unbroken'' (2014), Steven Spielberg's historical Cold War film ''Bridge of Spies'' (2015), and lesser-known, commercially unsuccessful comedies such as ''Crimewave'' (1985), ''The Naked Man'' (1998), and ''Gambit'' (2012). Ethan is also a writer of short stories, theater, and poetry.

They are known for their distinctive stylistic trademarks including genre hybridity. ''No Country for Old Men'', ''A Serious Man'' and ''Inside Llewyn Davis'' have been ranked in the BBC's 2016 poll of the greatest motion pictures since 2000. In 1998, the American Film Institute (AFI) ranked ''Fargo'' among the 100 greatest American movies ever made. Provided by Wikipedia
