A Comparison of Lists…

March 27, 2008

My friend Robert Mathison recently requested that I do a Top 5 Coen Brothers list, as well as a Top 10 Clooney Performances compilation. I took that offer, but under only one condition – that he do the same and I post both of them side by side, comparing our tastes with each. Here is how they stack up…
