A Serious Man

The post-Oscar Coen brothers are still being funny and dramatic, but A Serious Man may be the closest they'll ever get to a deeply personal film. This frequently abstract black comedy set in 1967 centers on a middle-aged, Jewish physics professor (Michael Stuhlbarg) whose life is falling apart. His job is in jeopardy. His son is a pot-smoker. His daughter wants a nose job. And his wife is leaving him for another man. Like a modern-day Job, our hero is tested at every turn. Autobiographical or just another winking lark? You never can tell with those Coens. 105 minutes
