Joel David Coen (born November 29, 1954) and Ethan Jesse Coen (born September 21, 1957) have been making films and thumbing their noses at traditional genre boundaries since 1984. Bouncing from FilmNoir to screwball comedy, from quirky indies to big-budget studio pieces, they function as a two-man writer-director-producer-editor SiblingTeam.

** Averted on ''The Hudsucker Proxy'', ''Fargo'', ''The Big Lebowski'' and some.



** [[InvertedTrope Turned on its head]] in their adaptation of ''Literature/NoCountryForOldMen'', which shows the protagonists making many stupid and / or rash decisions, or simply being unable to cope, in the face of a [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy frighteningly competent]] and [[ImplacableMan relentless assassin.]]

* TheVerse: Several of their films seem to take place in the same universe. The hotel fire from ''Film/BartonFink'' is referenced in a newspaper article in ''Film/MillersCrossing'' (''Crossing'' was produced first, but the films were written simultaneously) and the law firm "Whitehall and Marsh" is mentioned in both ''Film/BurnAfterReading'' and ''Film/ASeriousMan''. The mysterious blue volkswagen from ''Film/BloodSimple'' reappears in ''Film/TheBigLebowski''.

* ParvumOpus: Although they're still considered decent films, fans generally view "The Ladykillers" and "Intolerable Cruelty" to be a bit beneath the rest of the Coen brothers' work.
