  2. With a filmography that covers everything from westerns and gangster flicks to comedies and film noir, it can be rather difficult to pinpoint what exactly contributes to the style of Joel and Ethan Coen. While there are reoccurring themes and ideas that surface throughout the filmmakers' work, a consistent visual aesthetic is not easily recognized. What makes a Coen Brothers film look like a Coen Brothers film? One stylistic element that seems to be rather prominent in all their films is the POV shot. The Coens tend to utilize the POV shot to better submerse us in a scene, but the shot is often used to simply give us a unique perspective that can only be created through cinema. Here is a look at the Coens' use of the POV shot throughout their career.

    True Grit (2010)
    A Serious Man (2009)
    No Country for Old Men (2007)
    Intolerable Cruelty (2003)

    Because of technical issues I couldn't use 'Ladykillers' (2004) and 'The Hudsucker Proxy' (1994)
