115. Barton Fink (1991)
Think about it, Fink! Writers come and go; we always need Indians!
Not really an easy way to describe this movie except to say that the Coen brothers could make a movie about the most boring thing you could imagine and it would still be awesome. This is one of my favorites from them, but, again, I can't really explain why. I know that is a cop-out, but it is honest. I will say I believe the Coens really found two of their most important muses in John Turturro and John Goodman with this movie. Also, people were wondering what was in Barton Fink's box long before Marcellus Wallace's briefcase or whether Patrick Bateman's life was fantasy or reality...
