YMMV: Barton Fink
  • Award Snub: Similar to most of the Coen films before Fargo, this was relatively ignored come Oscar time (outside of a few warranted nominations for technical categories like Art Direction). In particular, John Turturro's and John Goodman's performances deserved far more consideration (though Goodman at least scored a Golden Globe nod).
  • Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: The further you get into the movie, the less you can believe it's meant to be taken literally.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Much of Barton and Charlie's dialog just makes you feel fuzzy. It all goes down the drain after The Reveal, however.
  • Ho Yay: Barton denies that his relationship with Charlie was some sort of sex thing, claiming that they just wrestled.
