Black comedy in usual Coen brothers fashion on the daily disgraces of a common Jewish family man in the 60s. There seems to be an underlying theme about interpreting and coping with the chaos of reality, but honestly, I just found the movie to be excruciatingly boring if not for a few impressive shots and quirky set pieces.

“…’The Uncertainty Principle.’ It proves that you can’t ever really know what’s going on. But even though you can’t figure anything out, you **will** be responsible for it on the midterm.” Two particularly standout sequences here: the opening parable about the dybbuk and the rabbi’s shaggy dog tale of the goy’s teeth. One’s opinion of the movie might depend on how cynical you’re feeling on the day you watch it. I think my initial thoughts years ago was that it was pretty mean-spirited, in that way the Coen brothers can get sometimes. But upon rewatch I felt the comedy come through a bit more cleanly, and little throwaway details (Jefferson Airplane, F-Troop) which are surely autobiographical made the tone feel a lot more affectionate. Either way, the movie is brilliantly funny and expertly crafted.

The movie has a lot of a awkward and dark humor and More

Sy Ableman: "I'm a serious man, Larry."

'A Serious Man' has to be the Coen Brothers most unappreciated movie when it comes to naming the Coen Brothers best movies, and yes there's plenty of outstanding movies from them, but lets not overlook movies such as this. The Coen B More

What's the point? Is a question " A Serious Man" dives into, Are there consquences to our actions? Do we control our own fate and what happens to us? Im not sure how to feel about this movie the acting is great, the score is really good and the movie is indecisive. It has this constant b More
