Critic’s Choice: The Coen brothers get a mini-retrospective and a fresh critical appraisal

The American Cinematheque will offer a welcome opportunity for audiences to test this thesis with June 21-23 retrospective screenings of “No Country for Old Men,” “Blood Simple,” “The Big Lebowski,” “The Man Who Wasn’t There,” “Fargo” and “A Serious Man,” all at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica. Nayman will introduce the films and sign copies of his book beforehand; the screening of “A Serious Man” will be introduced by the actor Fred Melamed.
