A Serious Man, directed by the Coen Brothers, is about a physics professor in 1967 who’s life is going down the toilet one piece at a time. Everything in the movie is so well done — the look, the feel, the acting — any random 2 minutes of “A Serious Man” is more interesting, intelligent and entertaining than most entire movies I’ve seen recenlty. This is filmmaking. And it’s fun, not cruel or bizarre like some Coen Brothers movies can be.
I’ve watched it twice since I got the DVD and enjoyed it even more the second time around. (This is a recycled post.)
