Barton Fink is simply amazing, it will leave you breathless, and should be mandatory viewing for any movie buff. It is one of the most thought provoking movies i have ever seen, there are many interpretations of what this movie is saying, and what you thought everything meant symbolically. This movie is for people who want to think, if you want to watch mindless violence and action, look elsewhere, but Barton Fink, nonetheless is a thought provoking and amazing movie. Go out and rent it right now.

Violence & scariness
Adult Written byJim24 January 19, 2019
This movie’s content is similar to Christopher Nolan’s Insomnia, where nearly all the violence is alluded to or shown post-attack. There’s a lot less of it in this movie, however. You see a dead body in bed for about a minute, and people are bloodlessly shot. Very intense and surreal movie.
