I also love Barton Fink, Fargo and Lebowski... but none of them are quite as warm as Raising Arizona, which is amazing considering it's dealing with bank robbery and child theft!! I think it's their most humanistic film.

I think Hi's voice overs add to the charm of the movie for me, his old fashioned and thoughtful flowery phrases that reveal so much more than his actions do.

Have to agree with that, Sprocket, don't you really care about them and want them to succeed?

Especially in this accent from the south! It makes that movie kind of realistic to me.

Agree Lady T, the voice over, with the many continuous quirky little cameos what a way to present a back story of sorts!!!

Nic's best accent, lol! Probably not really representative of Arizona though.

Well, I don`t know, how the arizona-people talks, but, to me, it`s def a funny accent, Lady T.

the coen's definitely wrote this Lady T!

I loved his accent too Lady A and his whole appearance in this move, the crazy hair, the hand dog expression, the at times  gangly legs...

Yeah, they do (on the whole at least!) They are very good as mannered, but convincing dialogue. Also they remind me of American writers like Mark Twain... tellers of tall tales who are interested in regional ways of talking (Raising Arizona is the mid-West).

I think so too, Lady A, it makes his character more attractive, maybe, so you quickly get past the idea that he is a career criminal of sorts!

haha that's a great description of how he looks, Lula! He's so long-limbed and scrappy! He's out-of-control in his life and in the way he looks!

But, he has a good heart and kind of knows, what`s right and wrong. He also loves his wife, as he kidnapps the baby. You can see clearly his conflict, because he actually doesn`t want to do this.
