^My aim wasn't to compare the films, but just using 'Magnolia' as an example of a drama that's pretty "hit or miss". It seems that most Coen Bro films are this way. Either you're a fan or you aren't... If that makes a lick of sense.
I'm irritated that 'A Serious Man' isn't on Netflix's "instant que"... I can't watch it from my xbox. :/
