Mini Review - A Serious Man

A Serious Man (out Nov 19) left me in a beautiful state of bewilderment.  The Coen brothers have done it again.  Set in 1967, it tells the story of a physics professor whose life starts going down the tubes.  He turns to his local rabbis for answers but can they provide them?  It features some truly memorable characters and will provide much food for thought.  Not for everyone though.  Grade: A-.
