Ethan Coen

Critics are usually kinder to cheaper movies than to those they perceive to be big Hollywood releases. They cut you a lot more slack if you spend less money, which makes no sense.More Ethan Coen [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Being non-commercial is never an ambition. Movies come together at different points for fortuitous reasons. You do them as you get the opportunity, as opposed to doing them when you choose to or design to.More Ethan Coen [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

It's just an impulse, in some actors. You want to make the audience like you. That's the aim of the exercise.More Ethan Coen [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You don't cast the animal, per se. You have an animal trainer who looks for several of them. That is a different experience than dealing with actors. That is just difficult. It is what you expect from an animal on the set. You just run a lot of film and prompt it to do the right thing, but sit through it doing all the wrong things first. It's just unbelievably boring, frustrating and painstaking to shoot.More Ethan Coen [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We tend to do period stuff because it helps make it one step removed from boring everyday reality.More Ethan Coen [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The mountain music... is compelling music in its own right, harking back to a time when music was a part of everyday life and not something performed by celebrities.More Ethan Coen [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When the movie's done, you talk about either the score or source music over a particular scene, what might work. You just throw a piece of music over the scene, and we both listen to it.More Ethan Coen [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Like any kind of writing, there are good days and frustrating days. But even frustrating days can be rewarding sometimes.More Ethan Coen [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
