I have seen this film twice now and It is excellent. As usual with Coen films the dialogue is excellent and very funny.

The cinematography is especially brilliant, with great 2.35:1 vistas. The digital colour correction adds to the surreal look of the film, some scenes look more like moving paintings. The prints I saw were very sharp but a little grainy this is proberly either a super 35, or digital scanning issue.

The soundtrack is also very good. Its refreshing to see a film of this quality.
