“Fargo” or “No country for old people”?

Filmmakers who make films hand in hand are a rare phenomenon. Not because the seventh art is not collaborative, but because the single order is the most common option in the industry. For this reason, the works of Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, Lana and Lilly Wachowski, Josh and Benny Safdie, Joe and Anthony Russo, Matt and Ross Duffer or Joel and Ethan Coen it is visible.

The latter two, in particular, are best known to moviegoers around the world along with the Wachowskis, although the Russos made two of the highest-grossing films in history, Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and end of Game (2019), and the Duffers are the creators of stranger things (since 2016). Also, none of the others won oscar award and they, yes.

They haven’t even received any nominations. Although the Dardennes have obtained Golden Palm two of his films at the Cannes Film Festival. Just like the Coen brothers for Barton Finkwho won statuettes from the Film Academy, as we said, for the screenplay of Fargo and three others thanks to There is no country for old people: Best Film, Direction and Adapted Screenplay.
