I found this laugh-out-loud hilarious. Interesting to see, now that the Coen brothers have separated, which one was the one responsible for arch, brittle, highly rhythmic dialogue; wild blasts of extremely vulgar language and violently dopey comedy; cartoony accents; across-the-board great performances from actors willing to look insane and demented on camera and trusting the director to save them from being ridiculous; editing full of highly visible, playful flourishes. That was Ethan.
