Barton Fink (1991)
A perplexing and fascinating mix of psychological drama and black comedy, Joel and Ethan Coen's award-winning film stars John Turturro as a '40s New York playwright hired by a Hollywood studio to write screenplays. His inability to complete the assignment, the rundown hotel he stays in, and a talkative insurance salesman from the next room all play a part in a cinematic descent into Hell. With John Goodman, Judy Davis, Michael Lerner. 116 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital stereo, French Dolby Digital mono, Spanish Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, Spanish; deleted scenes; photo gallery; theatrical trailers.
