The Coen Brother’s Micro-Budget Short Film: World Cinema
Commissioned by the Cannes Film Festival, the Coen Brothers wrote, produced, and directed the short film “World Cinema.” The film stars Josh Brolin dressed like his character in No Country For Old Men and going by the name Dan. He debates with the theater’s ticket taker (Grant Heslov) what movie he should watch.
Made on a small budget, it was great to see the Coen Brothers going back to their micro-budget roots. Enjoy!
