Short Film of the Day: The Coen Brothers’ ‘World Cinema’

Why Watch? The sheer joy of watching a Coen Brothers’ film in three minutes.

This segment from To Each His Own Cinema (which should be seen by everyone ever) is like taking the last bite of your favorite desert. It’s completely satisfying with its slow comedy, Josh Brolin’s fish-out-of-water-who-thinks-the-water’s-fine behavior, and the pocket of truth that everyone here is trying to find in its most common form.

Maybe that’s what’s so appealing here. There’s nothing false about this scene at all, and yet it’s still so funny.

What does it cost? Just 3 minutes of your time.
