As video essays go, this one, edited by Nelson Carvajal and published by Press Play, is quite leisurely; whole scenes play out at their own tempos, including a few you may have watched many times before.
But as the video progresses, Carvajal artfully overlays dialog from one Coen brothers movie over a scene from another, then he does it again and again. In so doing, he highlights some key themes from their work, and proves, yet again, just how unified their body of work really is.
