For me, they are:
1. 'Burn After Reading'
2. 'The Man Who Wasn't There'
3. 'A Serious Man'
4. 'Miller's Crossing'
1. Burn After Reading
2. The Big Lebowski
3. No Country for old Men
That is if we are talking traditional Coen films, if not then True Grit would be No.1!
This thread made me realize that I've only seen four Coen brothers films (Burn After Reading, The Big Lebowski, Burn After Reading, and O Brother Where Art Thou). I should fix that.
May want to recount :)
Neat, didn't know Burn was as popular. Great, underrated film.
For me, Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, A Serious Man, and The Hudsucker Proxy.
Of course, I'm in love with their dramatic works, but their comedic stuff, dark or goofy, is fucking Grade-A brilliant. I even loved The Ladykillers!
The reason I love 'Burn After Reading' the most is because it is the most urbane and terminally misanthropic of all the Coen Brothers' films. 'The Big Lebowski' was annoyingly humanistic at times, and 'Fargo' became very sentimental near it's end.
