Now an angle looking steeply down: the snow falls not quite dead away to collect on a foreground chimneypot and on the little shtetl street that lies maplike below us. It is night, and quiet, and the street is deserted except for one man who walks away from us, his valenki squeaking in the fresh snow. He carries bundled branches on one shoulder and has a hatchet tucked into his belt. We cut down to street level. The man walks toward us, bearded, and bundled against the cold.

Effective again with world-class cameraman Roger Deakins and editing, as always, under the pseudonym Roderick Jaynes, the Coens argue impeccable control over the movie's air and timing. This is more central than ever, given that in the precarious universe they define, actions allow consequences. The main-title credits almost display the fact that most of the cast members will be unfamiliar en route for us though they all deliver ; best known are Richard Kind at the same time as Arthur, Adam Arkin as Larry's annulment lawyer, and Michael Lerner the accommodation boss in Barton Fink doing a hilarious, wordless cameo as Solomon Schlutz. Samsky, the multifariously zoned-out siren who's Larry's other next-door neighbor; and Avi Hoptman as Arlen, Larry's mealy-mouthed bookish colleague who can't resist hinting by the latest rumblings from the occupancy committee, even if he can't actually say anything.
