A Serious Man

Directed by Ethan and Joel Coen

Movie poster for “A Serious Man”.

This must be the least good Coen brothers movie I’ve seen. I don’t know what to make of this. Not unlike “Au Poste!” you could somewhat revel in the absurdities and misfortune happening to the protagonist and his reactions to them. But the whole Jewish references just confused me. I guess it’s much better when you’re Jewish or at least familiar with their customs.
