Breaking Bad is like a Coen Brothers tv show

Post by Captain Cook on Sun May 10, 2009 8:34 am

Would anyone agree with me here, the way its filmed and acted and the subtle humour it just seems like the Coen Brothers have made a tv show, and we all probably see the Fargo reference (no rough stuff type deal)

I've not watched any of there films, but I've been meaning to watch some of their films for a while (Lewbowski, Fargo, No country), might give them a try.

I agree, the films have a dark humor to them.

I bought Fargo and Lebowski today. I'm about half way through Fargo and I can definitely see similarities with the pacing and camerawork etc.

Yeah. Breaking Bad seems sort of like a mix of Coen and Tarantino.

You hit the nail on the head. I can just imagine Walt & Jesse feeding a body into a wood chipper.

The Coens are kings of dialog!
Ya, in a funny sort of way
Friend, your foldin' money's come unstow'd
Her insides were a barren place where my seed could find no purchase.

No Country for old Men was a masterpiece. BB is a lot like that. Dark situation, ill-fated characters, and an ending that had to be the way it was.

BB definitely has a Coen brothers vibe. Mostly because of the dark, off-beat humor and the barren desert landscape which the Coens seem to feature a lot in their films as well.
