Modern Masters #3: Joel and Ethan Coen

TSPDT's latest list of the 1000 most-acclaimed films of this century is out. Based on that, I have selected filmmakers with the most impressive filmographies since 2000. Their ranking considers two aspects - how many of their films feature in Top 1000, and what is the respective rank of each of these films on that list.

"Where would it get you if something that's a little bit ambiguous in the movie is made clear? It doesn't get you anywhere."


American filmmaker-duo, respectively 60 and 57 years in age.

Have directed nine films since 2000, seven of which feature in Top 1000: No Country for Old Men (2007) is highest ranked at #23, followed by A Serious ManInside Llewyn DavisO Brother, Where Art Thou?True GritThe Man Who Wasn't There, and Burn After Reading.

Trivia: The Coen Brothers have always had the right to final cut on all their films. However, they reportedly never watch their films once completed.
