Print this article Whether one loves or hates Joel and Ethan Coen, there's no denying that the brothers have built a repertoire of films like no other director in Hollywood at the moment. From the laugh-out-loud romp "Raising Arizona" to their critically-lauded thriller "Fargo," the duo has brought almost every genre imaginable to the big screen.
The siblings are at it again with "True Grit," a western hailed by moviegoers as one of the standout films of the year. The brothers recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about other movies set in the Old West which have inspired them.
First up on the list was "The Life and Times of Roy Bean," which was released in 1972.
"Admittedly this John Huston movie is, apart from the opening scene, less swinging than the others on the list, but it has Paul Newman with his limpid blue eyes," the pair wrote on the news outlet.
Other flicks mentioned include "Greaser's Palace," "The Outlaw Josey Wales," and "Once Upon a Time in the West."
"True Grit," which stars Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon, is a modern day remake of the John Wayne film of the same name.
