New Clips Offer a Comic Look at the Frustrations of A Serious Man
Posted 09.10.09 by reelz
Coen brothers movies are all about the quirky characters, and their latest offering, A Serious Man, shows off quite a memorable and amusing cross-section of dysfunctional suburbanites from mid-1960s Minneapolis.
The beautifully choreographed trailer released a few weeks ago set the stage. Now, a new batch of clips from the movie provide another preview of just how painfully serious physics professor Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) is and just how hard a time he has getting anyone to take him seriously. Visited with one indignity after another and exiled from his family home to a rental at the Jolly Roger, his ability to adapt to the changing times is being sorely tested.
