The Coen Brothers are pure geniuses when it comes to comedy. Hail, Caesar is my second favorite next to O Brother, Where Art Thou. I understood the plot perfectly: Eddie Mannix has his hands full trying to keep all the actors belonging to the movie studio in line while at the same time he's thinking about taking another job with more money and lesser hours. You get to see behind the scenes lunacy of yesteryear film making along with the recreation of all the different genres from cowboy to musical to Biblical Epic. There's nothing about this film I don't like. The casting was perfect, the comedy is the laugh-out-loud kind, and the creativity of the whole thing is majorly impressive. I'm buying a copy of my own as soon as I can!
