Man Who Wasn't There, The

Rating = B+

Throughout this movie, I kept thinking about how much the Coen brothers must of enjoyed making the movie. It is filled with loving detail of the 1950s. All the actors are fine, particularly Billy Bob Thornton and Tony Shalhoub. The dialog and the plots twists are always fun. I found myself smiling to myself throughout this movie.

I happened to see Almost Famous again on TV the night before seeing The Man Who Wasn't There. Frances is fine but not as wonderful in The Man Who Wasn't There as she was in Almost Famous. She was more than adequate in the Man That Wasn't There, but she's a lot more fun playing the upbeat character rather than the downbeat one.
