Raising Arizona is one of the reasons why I love the Coen brothers. I'm not a huge fan of all their films, I prefer their comedies, but they are two of the film industries most brilliant creators. They have a sense of humor and visual style rarely found onscreen today. Their films may be somewhat twisted, but they're always original, well-acted and uniquely directed. This film is a comedy classic with amazing performances by Nicolas Cage and Holly Hunter. They play a newly married couple who just wants to start a family. Their desperation drives them to commit a horrible crime in the name of parental love.
