Channing-tatum-hail-caesar-coen-brother Fun With Catholics and Communism

The funniest scene in Hail, Caesar! is a microcosm of the film’s overall genius. Foppish British director Laurence Laurentz (Ralph Fiennes) tries to get Hobie Doyle (Alden Ehrenreich), a singin’ and dancin’ cowboy movie star, to deliver a single line of dialogue in a refined, “rueful” way.

I actually had to reach into the second level and promote two “also-rans” into the rankings. The top of the list isn’t just good, it’s all-time good for me, filled with at least 3 movies I will watch until I get “jelly eyes.” What there was to...
