Directed by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen
Hail, Caesar! is a comedy set in the 1950s Hollywood film industry. The film is filled with great actors, though most are barely used, the Coen Brothers’ dialogue is characteristically sharp, though their usual themes are blunted, and though the film has obvious affection for its subject, it lacks a clear sense of purpose. Hail, Caesar! is slight, but endearing and incredibly funny.
