Joel Coen and Ethan Coen collectively referred to as the Coen Brothers, are American filmmakers. Their films span many genres and styles, which they frequently subvert or parody. Their most acclaimed works include ‘Miller’s Crossing’ in 1990, ‘Fargo’ in 1996, ‘The Big Lebowski’ in 1998, ‘No Country for Old Men’ in 2007, ‘True Grit’ in 2010 and ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ in 2013.
The brothers write, direct and produce their films jointly, although until ‘The Ladykillers’, released in 2004 Joel received sole credit for directing and Ethan for producing. They often alternate top billing for their screenplays while sharing editing credits under the alias Roderick Jaynes. They have been nominated for thirteen Academy Awards together, and individually for one award each, winning 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 Palme d’Or for ‘Barton Fink’ in 1991.
The Coens have written a number of films they did not direct, including the biographical war drama ‘Unbroken’ in 2014, the historical legal thriller ‘Bridge of Spies’ in 2015, and lesser-known, commercially unsuccessful comedies such as ‘Crimewave’ in 1985, ‘The Naked Man’ in 1998 and ‘Gambit’ in 2012. Ethan is also a writer of short stories, theater and poetry.
Known for many distinctive stylistic trademarks including genre hybridity, the brothers’ films ‘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.
