Poor Barton. When the wall paper starts peeling off the walls on its own things aren’t looking so good. This is another brilliant Cohen brother’s film. John Turturro plays Barton Fink the mild-mannered writer and John Goodman plays Charlie, his hefty neighbour. As Turturro struggles with his futile attempt to write a wrestling picture, he may wish he had never made the trip to LA, or had Charlie knock on his door! No one is madder than John Goodman when he wants to be!! Better have a cold drink handy for the climax of this picture. And what did you think was really in that box anyway??
