"When the truth is found to be lies and all the joy within you dies don't you want somebody to love" - Grace Slick

Went to see the Coen brothers new movie "A Serious Man" last night. Those dudes know how to get under my skin.

As the lovely Carla so eloquently put it, their movie "makes you laugh at the same time they punch you in the gut." That's entertainment.

I think it works on so many levels. Another one of those works that throws you into an existential tail-spin. Although, maybe I'm just partial to existential tail spinning!

Really good stuff.

  1. DEFINITELY A BEAUTIFUL EXISTENTIAL MOMENT - THAT thunderous tornado on a path toward them, everyone unable to tear their eyes away from the approaching doom; that poor man who did everything right, and still it rains down s--t; well, isn't that something?! "Sometimes the bear eats you, sometimes you eat the bear." They've been indifferent and existential for a long time. What a wonderful movie.
