I'm disappointed because I've really enjoyed the other two Coen brothers films I've seen so far, but this fell completely flat for me.
Raising Arizona has that Coen feel to it, from the moment we see Nicolas Cage's character, right up till the opening credits which is like 15 minutes later.
Wouldn't be surprised if Cage needed a year off after this film wrapped, because this one of the most physically demanding roles I've ever seen and Cage totally sinks his teeth into it, but it's Holly Hunter's Ed that is the heart of this story.
