    A Serious Man

    Are you kidding me?

    Nominated for an Oscar?

    Holy hell what a sh*tty movie.

    There was a good movie in there somewhere. But it didn't come together for me either.

    I'm serious.

    After giving it more thought overnight, I've decided that I'm going to take a dump in that bright red Netflix return envelope and mail it to the Coen Brothers.

    I liked the movie. It was more of a character examination than a typical Hollywood formula plot that's spoon fed to you. The opening with the Jewish fable was the Coen's ode to the short cartoons that used to precede the main features like in the old days. Thats what they said in an interview.

    For those who still wish to see it despite JJ Ebert's thumbs down be warned I'm about to mentions specific parts...

    The movie highlights this guy getting slammed and pushed and his quest for answers. He's trying to make sense of the senseless. Sometimes sh!t happens (repeatedly) to people..how could you not relate to his search for an answer?

    The tornado at the end was an obvious metaphor that sh!t was going to hit the fan yet again...no coincidence it came after his phone conversation with the doctor.

    Bang Bros make quality films, albeit more gonzo than independent.

    I thought "A Serious Man" was ok. I'm sure that I missed some of the Jewish humor. The movie is a bit of a blur now, but I remember thinking that he should have banged that tanned MILF next door.

    I have a feeling I'll enjoy this film. Most of the Coen Brothers stuff is gold despite it not being for everyone. These are the same people that b1tched about the end of "No Country." :yes:
