Film Trailers: A SERIOUS MAN

     Wednesday Film Trailers presents the Coen Brothers brilliant comedy A Serious Man. Coming off the huge critical success of the also fantastic No Country For Old Men, the brothers delivered a witty, somewhat autobiographical tale of growing up Minnesota. Parents are going through difficult emotional times, husband Larry Gopnik, played unbelievably well by Micahel Stuhlbarg, who is merely a mediocre, miserable college professor and the dead pan sophistication of what true comedy is and should be. This was considered minor work by many upon its release. It was not the swift thriller like the aforementioned No Country or Fargo but this is some of the brothers best work, right up there with Barton Fink, Miller's Crossing and The Big Lebowski. A personal story about an under achiever and all the misery that comes along with a mid-life crisis. The Coen's, who have another film that is gaining widespread praise at the current Cannes Film Festival called Inside Llewyn Davis, seem so perfectly adept at pinpointing place, time and moods of the lives of there characters better than any other filmmakers working right now. Excellent filmmakers. Watch the film and enjoy the trailer!
