Twenty-five years later, and the Coen brothers’ Barton Fink meaning is still being debated. Is the Hotel Earle actually hell? Is this just a case of two filmmakers writing about their experiences in Hollywood? Does the threat of Red Scare loom over its every scene? Viewers may never know for certain, but it is fun to theorize and discuss the film at length; it’s a deep enough film that is open to multiple interpretations that rewards with every rewatch.
The Coen brothers’ tale of a playwright in 1941 going west to write a wrestling picture for Capitol Pictures has long stayed in the minds of the audiences that saw it.
