A Serious Man

A Serious Man (2009)

83 A Jewish man’s life begins to fall apart in 1967 mid-western suburbia. Blackly comic drama is a profound movie about simple questions. The movie gradually becomes absorbing, and feels like a cross between Barton Fink and some Woody Allen serio-comedies. Watching it, you really feel that you’re in the confident hands of directors (the Coen brothers) who have mastered their craft. Very well performed; Fred Melamed is particularly good.
