But, instead of writing a story pivoting around the common man, Fink’s first screenplay turns out to be a Wallace Beery wrestling movie, and, before he knows it, he develops a severe case of writer’s block. Now, holed up in the seedy, run-down Hotel Earle, before his silent Underwood typewriter, Barton comes to realise that his only hope to meet the deadline is to take inspiration from the burly insurance salesman living next door, Charlie Meadows, and the unassuming secretary, Audrey Taylor. In the meantime, the suffocating stranglehold of artistic bankruptcy tightens. Does self-destructive Barton Fink have the stomach for confronting Hollywood’s bitter reality?
Plot: A renowned New York playwright is enticed to California to write for the movies and discovers the hellish truth of Hollywood.

Another Coen Brothers Classic!!!
I recently purchased “Barton Fink” along with “Miller’s Crossinhg”, another Coen Brothers gem.
Barton Fink quite simply is a writer who cannot see the forest for the trees. He is so taken with the fact that he is a writer that he can’t write. He is so idealistic that he misses fantastic opportunities to become a writer for the ages because he wastes precious time proselytizing. John Goodman perfectly sums up everyone’s frustration with Barton Fink when after a series of unfortunate occurrences, Barton asks him “Why me?” to which John’s character answers “Because you don’t LISTEN!” Set in 1930s Hollywood we follow the exploits of a one-hit wonder, Barton Fink, who has written a successful Broadway play and is summoned by the powers that be to Hollywood. After much cajoling to take the job from his agent, Barton arrives in Los Angeles determined to become the writer for the common man where he insists true stories live. The trouble with Barton, however, is he does not have time for the common man because he has so romanticized their lot as well as his particular quest in speaking for them.
Excellent performances from John Turturo, John Goodman, Judy Davis, John Polito (often overlooked, but his scenes ALWAYS become his!!) and the inimitable Tony Shaloub.
I have decided after a slew of Coen Brothers films I currently have in my collection, that any project these guys are involved with deserve more than passing scrutiny.
Well… um… that was interesting. I’m not sure what to make of “Barton Fink” the movie or the character played by John Turtoro. This Coen brothers project was artsy, eccentric, and strange. The characters and even the scenarios were all hyperbolized.
Barton Fink was a playwright from New York. He wanted to make a little more money so he took a job with Capital Pictures in Hollywood. Once he reached the west coast and settled into his tiny weekly rental room he began running into strange people and having strange interactions. I don’t know if this was a true representation of 1940’s Hollywood or just a depiction of how strange it can be. In any case, the only real conflict and drama was whether or not Barton Fink would finish a script in time for a wrestling movie–and if he did–would it be acceptable.
They were able to hone in on Fink’s listlessness and inability to write such that it was more dramatic than it should have been. Other than that I’d say the picture was rather random.
