Raising Arizona

4

After O Brother, Where Art Thou? and The Big Lebowski, we're used to the Coens doing out-and-out comedy, but fans of their debut, Blood Simple, must have been shocked when this arrived as their second movie. Fourteen years later, it's still a yuk-a-minute screwball feelgooder. Nic Cage (see, he was good, once) and Holly Hunter make a wonderfully dysfunctional screen couple, and look out for Frances McDormand's hilarious cameo as a hellish mom.
