The Man Who Wasn't There
The story is rife with the Coens' ripe ambivalence, a black seriocomic opera of fouled-up American dreams, and a meditation on ambivalence that is itself often as ambiguous as the emotional meanderings of its protagonist, a small-town barber. The film's black-and-white image processing is stunning.
