1991 Certificate: 15


The Coen Brothers' surreal black comedy stars John Turturro as the titular New York playwright whose big break in Hollywood turns into a four-star nightmare. Stuck in a run-down hotel, Fink is plagued not only by writer's block but also the overly friendly salesman in the room next door (John Goodman). And there's something unnerving about omnipresent bellboy Chet (Steve Buscemi). Book in for a typically Coen-esque yarn, full of dark and twisted delights.
