A Serious Man

"Are you freakin' serious?!You wanna go to New Zealand?!"

...was what my dad said when I joked to him about wanting to be a sheep breeder.Haha.

LOL,hey guys! It's been a freakin' long time since the last post, eh?But don't ya worry no more, I'll be more active now and post loads and loads more of reviews for ya!

Okay so for this post,I'll be reviewing about the movie "A Serious Man".

A Serious Man is the story of an ordinary man’s search for clarity in a universe where Jefferson Airplane is on the radio and F-Troop is on TV. It is 1967, and Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg), a physics professor at a quiet Midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife Judith (Sari Lennick) that she is leaving him.

She has fallen in love with one of his more pompous colleagues, Sy Ableman (Fred Melamed), who seems to her a more substantial person than the feckless Larry. Larry’s unemployable brother Arthur (Richard Kind) is sleeping on the couch, his son Danny (Aaron Wolf) is a discipline problem and a shirker at Hebrew school, and his daughter Sarah (Jessica McManus) is filching money from his wallet in order to save up for a nose job.

While his wife and Sy Ableman blithely make new domestic arrangements, and his brother becomes more and more of a burden, an anonymous hostile letter-writer is trying to sabotage Larry’s chances for tenure at the university.

Also, a graduate student seems to be trying to bribe him for a passing grade while at the same time threatening to sue him for defamation. Plus, the beautiful woman next door torments him by sunbathing nude. Struggling for equilibrium, Larry seeks advice from three different rabbis. Can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person – a mensch – a serious man?

Wow.Kinda cool plot don'cha guys thinks?Well, that's the text part.And now,for the video part.

Yeap.Totally sounds like a helpless average working executive who's trying to figure out what's wrong with his life,but in the end, there was nothing wrong with it.

A Serious Man is the kind of story where an average person, who works in the white collar industry faces a tremendous amount of pressure and at the same time, he is unsatisfied with his current life.

His life may be,for example ;on the verge of divorce and his kids are all grown up and does not like him that much.

Well, I guess it would all depend on the screenwriter,director and actors.

For the cast and staff reviews, you can go here.

Okay that's it for now. See you later.

Movie Canovie.
