Coen Brothers | The Thinking Man's Filmmakers

While Joel and Ethan Coen have been making films together since 1985, their partnership was not always a forgone conclusion. While Joel pursued film studies at NYU, Ethan took a more cerebral path, studying philosophy at Princeton, where he wrote his senior thesis on Ludwig Wittgenstein. And while the two would never stoop to intellectual pretensions, their films often provoke in-depth discussion. For example, religion columnist Cathleen Falsani takes on their theology in “Everybody Hurts: The Universal Appeal of the Coen Brothers.”
