You wake up with a start and your hands instinctively go to your hair. Breakfast is week-old horse stew with a young nipper. Speaking of which, you’ve got a great idea for a toy; you proudly show off your design and are greeted by blank stares. You hold your invention closer to the faces of the men around you, adding helpfully “You know, for kids!” Congratulations, you're living in a world of Coen Brothers movie tropes.
You've unexpectedly turned a corner in life and are living the things that happen in all Coen Brothers films? How is it working out for you?

Check out this list of things in every Coen Brothers movie to determine whether you've suddenly left reality and entered a demented cinematic universe.
