Here are my newest crime films blogs. This time I discuss the Coen Brothers’ relation to the crime genre and their film The Big Lebowski as well as Burt Reynold’s Sharky’s Machine.
You know, I just rewatched Sharky’s Machine a little over a week ago and fully endorse your assessment of its worth. I think it’s a great little neo-noir, with excellent performances from a fantastic cast.
It really shows, along with the likes of Hustle as far as acting is concerned, what Reynolds was capable of had he not decided to take the money and run with the lucrative good ol’ boy schtick.

Thanks Colin. I really feel this and some of Reynolds’ other work is underrated.
