Personal Quote:

It's a funny thing; people sometimes accuse us of condescending to our characters somehow -- that to me is kind of inexplicable. See more »

Trivia:

When asked what films most influenced him and his brother early on, Joel mentioned Hollywood comedies from the late 50s and early 60s usually critically considered lightweight and inferior, including Boeing, Boeing (1965), A Global Affair (1964), That Touch of Mink (1962) and Pillow Talk (1959). He also claimed that The Guns of Navarone (1961) is his favorite film. See more »

Trademark:

Often begins movies with a voiceover by a southern character (see: _Blood Simple (1984)_, The Hudsucker Proxy (1994), The Big Lebowski (1998), No Country for Old Men (2007)). See more »
