Watched "The Man Who Wasn't There" with _tove. A Coen brothers movie I had seen a long time ago, but didn't remember too much of. The black-and-white worked very well in it; pretty much every shot was gorgeous. The greek-tragic storyline is straight downhill, serving as an object lesson in reminding the viewer that just because someone seems thoughtfully taciturn doesn't mean they are actually smart or make good life decisions. Good acting, and a reasonably limited amount of violence considering the people responsible. (8/10)
