About the Program

In a career that has so far spanned thirty years, Joel and Ethan Coen have co-created a cinematic body of work that is uniquely and recognizably theirs, despite working across wildly diverse genres. Come together with fellow movie buffs to discuss four of the Coen Brothers’s most acclaimed films—Barton Fink (1991), The Big Lebowski (1998), No Country for Old Men (2007), and A Serious Man (2009).

Go beneath the surface to explore the themes, writing, acting, and production design that both unify and distinguish the Coen Brothers’s amazing, highly entertaining, and eminently quotable output.

Facilitator: Theodore Rand is a graduate of New York University. A former magazine editor, he has held legal and technology positions at Miramax, Yahoo! Media Group, Fox Networks, and the Walt Disney Company. He is currently head of technology for the Executive Education Program at UCLA Anderson School of Management. He will not reveal his favorite Coen Brothers movie except to say that three are tied for first place.
