This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed Hail, Caesar, the latest film from the Coen brothers, who we quite adore. And if you’re a fan of the Coen brothers like we are, you’ll know this task was impossible. But that was actually part of the charm in doing this exercise. There are SO many great moments and scenes from the Coen’s filmography, which means our top 3 moments are very special to us and says a lot about us and who the Coen’s are as filmmakers to us.

That being said, what Coen Brother moments would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:
