From Blood Simple and Raising Arizona to Inside Llewyn Davis and Hail, Caesar!, the films of Joel and Ethan Coen represent a sort of alternate reality of America. The author explores how the settings—geographical, cultural, and historical—of their films provide viewers with slightly skewed, though no less true, perspectives of life American life.
