FILM REVIEW: HAIL, CAESAR!
Hollywood gets hilarious
George Clooney as Baird Whitlock in Hail, Caesar!

The big screen
The Coen Brothers create imaginary
cinematic scenarios inhabited by
oddball characters and intriguing
complications. Even their
unsuccessful films are interesting
In Hail, Caesar! the Coens
reimagine the Hollywood studio
system during the 1950s. The film is
both homage to the realm of
Hollywood magic and a satire of the
very industry the Coens themselves
must navigate to make their films.
Josh Brolin is fantastic as Eddie
Mannix, the boss at Capital Pictures.
His job is to deal with production
schedules, actors' contracts and all
manner of personal and emotional
issues that have the potential to cause
scandal for the studio.
When his major star, Baird
Whitlock, disappears from the set of
their major production, Hail, Caesar!,
Mannix does what he does best. He
juggles actors, agents, gossip
columnists and kidnappers to save the
George Clooney's ability to act
badly as Baird Whitlock reveals his
skill as a good actor.
The film follows Mannix and
Baird's misadventures but is best when
it isolates scenes capturing
Hollywood's Golden Days such as
Channing Tatum's dance musical
extravaganza, Brolin's hilarious
discussion with religious leaders about
the depiction of "the Christ" in Hail,
Caesar! and the outlandish attempts
by prima donna director Laurence
Lorentz to coach mumbling cowboy
Hobie Doyle's attempt to act in a
drama about high society.
As a film fanatic, I enjoyed the
Coens' recreation of grand Hollywood
productions featuring elaborate Busby
Berkeley-like water choreography, the
inflated egos of renowned directors
and the confected personalities of
Love or hate their films, the Coen
Brothers produce unconventional
movies that are as imaginative as they
Hail Caesar! echoes similar notions
as Robert Altman's Hollywood satire
The Player, except filtered through the
Coen Brothers lens.
Hail Caesar! is both idiosyncratic
Hail the Coen Brothers.
