In "Hail, Caesar!" the Coen canon reaches a crescendo – or rather a warped inversion of one – when the brothers assemble a quartet of religious leaders from various faiths and stand them before Josh Brolin's 1950s movie studio "fixer" Eddie Mannix.It's the Coen version of a priest and a rabbi walk into a movie studio.Human folly is the star.Part "Barton Fink," part "A Serious Man," "Hail, Caesar!" is by no means the Coen Brothers' best film but it's in some ways most essential. Ehrenreich steals the show with some of the best bad actor acting you've ever seen.Twin-sister gossip columnists modeled after Hedda Hopper (both played by Tilda Swinton) are threatening to report something ominous about Baird from an older film of his, "On Wings as Eagles".It's the main thread of the film, but "Hail, Caesar!" isn't much occupied with main threads.
