TRAILER: A Serious Man...

It's no secret that I have an awkwardly strong love for a certain directing duo, The Coen Brothers. However, there is nothing quantifiable that is similar to the love I have for this ballsy ass trailer, for the Brothers Coen and and their new film, A Serious Man. Seriously, scoring a trailer with the sound of a man's head bashing into a blackboard? I'm just going to let the trailer do the talking.



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. While his wife and Sy Ableman blithely make new domestic arrangements, and his brother becomes more and more of a burden, an anonymous hostile letter-writer is trying to sabotage Larry’s chances for tenure at the university. Struggling for equilibrium, Larry seeks advice from three different rabbis. Can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person – a mensch – a serious man

Go see something good!
