A Serious Masterpiece...

"I feel like the carpet's been yanked out from under me."

One thing's for certain: no-one could ever accuse Joel and Ethan Coen of selling out. After the duo achieved perhaps their greatest critical success with No Country for Old Men (for which they collected multiple well-earned Oscars) immediately followed by the box office triumph of Burn After Reading, they've created one of th... read more

Larry Gopnik is professor and his life is about fall part because his wife is planning on leaving him. Larry tries to figure out where his life is heading, as he tries to manage his career his brother and being a father all at the same time.

I liked the realistic 70's feel to the film and some of the music that was played over a few scenes, but that is where my liking for this film ... read more

One of the best Coen's movies. As usual, they joke about everything, they are serious about everything. They let suspence grow bigger and bigger... and then? It seems they're right there, in front of you, answering "what did you expect from us?" A silent strong powerful sarcasm as in Raising Arizona. All the actors at their best. Simon Helberg cameo (Howard Wolowitz in TBBT).

Description: “A Serious Man” is the story of an ordinary man’s search for clarity in a universe where Jefferson Airplane is on the radio and “F-Troop” is on TV. It is 1967, and Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg), a physics professor at a quiet Midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife Judith (Sari Lennick) that she is leaving him. She has fallen in love with one of his more pompous colleagues, Sy Ableman (Fred Melamed), who seems to her a more substantial person than the feckless Larry. Larry’s unemployable brother Arthur (Richard Kind) is sleeping on the couch, his son Danny (Aaron Wolf) is a discipline problem and ... (more)

my half assed 2018 movie diary (35 movies items)

" You only have to say 3 words to make me interested in a movie: nerdy Jewish protagonist. This movie has enough neuroticism and awkwardness to cause me to incur days of contemplation and self-hatred and overthinking and internal analysis because I identify with the quashed and defeated main character of this movie- Larry Gopnik. Michael Stuhlbarg gives an amazing performance as a pathetic man whose career, finances, family life, physical and mental health and sense of spirituality are all col"

Katsotut 2018 (239 movies items)

"24.3.2018, kirjaston DVD Positiivinen yllätys, sillä Coenin-veljesten 2000-luvun puolen välin jälkeinen tuotanto ei ole itselleni kolahtanut yhtä hyvin kuin heidän aikaisemmat elokuvansa (poikkeuksena Kova kuin kivi). Pidin erityisesti unikohtauksista ja Michael Stuhlbargin esittämästä päähenkilöstä, joka kohtaa vaikeuksia elämässään. Epätavalliseen tapaan tässä ei nähdä John Goodmania tai ketään muuta Coenien vakionäyttelijää. "

" Until I looked at my movie journals, I was operating under the assumption that I had first seen this in the fall of '09, when I had actually seen it in February of 2010. Something about that day gave it a feeling of a mid-to-late fall day. That doesn't really change anything here, but occasionally a small detail helps the readers' understanding. This ended up being one the several films I watched directly after coming home from a day of school, and subsequently fell asleep during. I ended up fi"
