Sony Pictures rolled out the carpet (blue, this time) for Men In Black 3, so the likes of Will Smith, Josh Brolin, Emma Thompson and a posse of mod-60’s go-go dancers could strut their stuff around Leicester Square. It’s not exactly Mad Men retro cool – hell, there are extraterrestrials involved here, but MIB 3 promises a time-travel lurch back into the days of Andy Warhol, The Beatles and crazy Clockwork Orange furniture.
It’s hard to fault the Coens, ever. Their version of True Grit is quite possibly one of the most well-made, most old-school throwback to the dying breed of Western movies in recent memory, standing right next to Andrew Dominik’s sublime The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. It paints a loving homage to the wild west with reverence, panache and some good old grit.
