Be a Fink.

Barton Fink.

Classic Cohen Brothers film with one of my fave actors – John Turturro.

He plays a writer who has just written a very successful play and now Hollywood is calling him. So he shows up at the Hollywood studio and is told he is to write a Wrestling movie. He knows nothing about wrestling and is forced to come up with something in a weeks time.

From that point on the movie is a bit slow (typical Cohen Bros) but it was very well done. At the half way point there is a twist that turns the movie into a David Lynch style flick where everything becomes surreal/dreamlike. But in any case, this is a MUST see if you are a writer!
