Appreciate your friends
This movie starts off slow and seems to be boring unless you pay attention. It goes on to be funny, thank goodness. The Coen Bros must have known these people and lived that life. They created, in my opinion, the most irritating villain in Sy Ableman. An obnoxious asshole who oozes of syrupy bullshit and reminded me of a back stabbing car salesman I had the misfortune of working with.
In the movie they use an obscure Jimmie Hendrix song Machine Gun that fits nicely into their weird but believable story. The movie deals with everyday stress in a very intense manner. I liked it but I did have to stop the DVD and start it over only because I started watching it at 4 a.m. and realised I needed a full nights sleep to watch it.
