johncameron Who is John Cameron?  I have to admit I recognized the name but couldn’t quite place him.  Well he played one of the brainstormers in The Hudsucker Proxy trying to come up with a name for the Hula Hoop.  More than that he’s been a production manager, assistant director, and co-producer on several of the Coen Brothers films.  Here’s a quick interview with Mr. Cameron

Someone spent a fair amount of time putting together this montage of music and scenes from all the Coen Brothers films up through No Country For Old Men.  Worth a look.

It looks as though A Serious Man will not be ready in time for Cannes in May.  Various reports are saying that Joel and Ethan will not be taking their latest film to the Festival that has treated them so well in the past. 

Of the Coen Brothers films 8 of 13 went to Cannes.  No Country for Old men, The Ladykillers, The Man Who Wasn’t There, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Fargo, The Hudsucker Proxy, Barton Fink, Raising Arizona all appeared at the most respected of film festivals. 

bartonfink01 The Man Who Wasn’t There earned them the best director award in 2001.  Best Director was won again in 1996 with Fargo.  In 1991 Barton Fink turned in the best results with 3 wins.  The Palm d’Or the most prestigious prize, Best Director, and Best Actor for John Turturro. 

With results like that it’s a shame they won’t make it back with A Serious Man. Maybe they’ll be at the Toronto film festival in September which is closer to the release date of October 2nd.
