A Serious Masterpiece

Tonight we went to see the Coen Brothers’ latest movie, “A Serious Man“.  This is movie-making as fine art.  Neither Hitchcock nor Fellini nor Welles could have done better.  And none of them could have managed it in a comedy.

I haven’t seen “Avatar” but I know in advance that it a movie by and about technology.  “A Serious Man” on the other hand is about the acting, the writing, the direction, the editing, the depiction in style and content of a remembered age and social milieu.  “A Serious Man” is just about perfect on all those levels.

Go see it while you still can.
