I was excited to hear about the True Grit remake. Coen brothers did a much better job with historic costumes, better acting and better cinematography. But I didn't like the movie, and your podcast helped me understand why.ReplyDelete
The Coen Bros. left out what I felt was the most important scene in the first movie. "This is a rat writ writ for a rat". Rats don't pay attention to the law. Society needs Rooster Cogburns, even if they're rude, crude and socially unacceptable.
Also, what's up with the man and the bear scene? WTH? It couldn't have been in the source material, and what did it add to the story?
Very interesting podcast. I look forward to more.
