A wonderfully odd, bleakly comic and thoroughly engrossing film. Read full review
The always surprising Coen brothers have finally made a very serious movie with A Serious Man. It's about God, man's place in the world and the meaning of life, so naturally it's one of their funnier movies. Read full review
