Movie Haiku:This film takes a long, long time to get going & if it's visual look were less mesmerizing (in luminous b&w), you might lose patience. But midway through, the Coen Brothers begin to hold back their facetious smirks, allowing the full depth of Ed's (Thorntonís) isolation into the foreground.
