Re: Movies Seen In 2013


39. A Serious Man (A)

My second viewing of the film, the first since it came out back in 2010. It scored a Best Picture nomination at the time (one of the many signs that the Academy voters aren't using those extra slots like the board of directors wanted). "Ambiguity" has become one of the most misused concepts in contemporary serious cinema, but the Coens use it to perfection here. The film is also a delightful depiction of a particular place and time in Jewish-American culture. This is one of the Coens' more underrated movies, despite getting strong reviews at the time.
