Your Daily Short: The Coen Brothers’ ‘World Cinema’

Welcome to Your Daily Short, a new feature on that will highlight and stream a short film at high noon. Every weekday. Every week.

TODAY’S SHORT: “World Cinema” (Ethan & Joel Coen) 2007


WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: In 2007, the venerable brothers Coen participated in an omnibus called “Chacun son Cinema” (To Each His Own Cinema), a collaborative project that invited a mess of esteemed filmmakers to celebrate their beloved medium however they saw fit. Unsurprisingly, the Coens’ short contribution is a highlight (of both the film and your time on this mortal coil). Josh Brolin plays a rugged rancher-type named Dan who decides to spend an afternoon at an art house cinema, and … well, simple pleasures ensue.

P.S. If you haven’t seen “Climates” (or “The Rules of the Game,” for that matter), Dan’s review is mighty accurate.
