RARA-AVIS: Coen Brothers

From: Paul Duncan ( paul.duncan@asml.nl)

Joel & Ethan Coen have cited Dashiell Hammet as an influence on Miller's Crossing, and Chandler's The Long Goodbye on The Big Lebowski. I think it would be safe to assume James M Cain influenced Blood Simple.

There is a new book about the Coen Brothers out next month, by John Ashbrook and Ellen Cheshire, as part of the Pocket Essentials series
(www.pocketessentials.com) which goes into detail about the influences.
(I know because I edited it.)
