Small town Barber Ed Crane decides to escape his humdrum life by blackmailing his adulterous wife and her mob boss lover in this superb Coen brothers' Comedy-Drama. The Coens' characteristically sharp dialogue, wry humour and stylish vision combine with magnificent lead performances from Billy Bob Thornton, Frances McDormand and stunning cinematography from Roger Deakins in a story of crime and punishment. The Man Who Wasn't There is a meticulously crafted tribute to 1940's Film Noir, made in the Coens' own inimitable style and one of their finest films.
