Here's an interview Joel and Ethan Coen gave to The Hollywood Reporter on their latest film - True Grit. Obviously I'm going to check this out, but what really drew me in was this line...
The Hollywood Reporter: Did John Wayne’s iconic performance cast a shadow on your True Grit?
Joel Coen: Jeff kinda didn’t care. The one person who might have been put off by it. He just kinda didn’t give a shit.
Ethan Coen: A lot of people might take umbrage, but I’m not sure that was the iconic performance of John Wayne. To think of it as iconic largely because of the Oscar is a mistake.
