I didn't really get this the first time I watched it. Couldn't stop laughing the second time, though. And it gets even funnier when you realize that spoiler

Much like Inside Llewyn Davis (2013), very few of the integral stories of A Serious Man are resolved, but that's kind of the point. Larry Gopnik wanted answers for all of life's questions, but of course he never really finds them, nor was he mean't to, because that's life.

An authentic, curious and well-thought comedic drama from the Coens - the appeal is in the craftsmanship and in the characters.

A well made film by the Cohens. Consistent, watchable, humourous, and wise.

Probably one of their most clearly nihilistic movies.

The engraved teeth sequence is just brilliant, so Coen brothers.

Got the black part, not really the comedy aspect.

Dark humour with a touch of feel good, but at the same time you'll be sitting on nails, just waiting for him to explode. He just wants to live a simple life.

Wow what an ending. A film that I can easily see frustrating many however what's funny is that would only solidify the point of the film. It leaves you with the same feeling of existential dread that the main character is struggling with throughout. Very powerful. Also one of the funniest dark comedies you'll see.

I'm convinced they added loud sounds through the movie to wake you up when you fell asleep

An exploration of the incomprehensibility of the universe filled with missed messages from God, whether that God is the Jewish Hashem or the secular power of mathematics. Both are one and the same in this film, and Their presence can be felt in what could easily become my favorite tragi-comedy of the year. I'm a sucker for Schrodinger's Cat references anyway.

Not among my favorite Coen brothers films, but the scene with rabbi quoting the Jefferson Airplane is definitely win.

I really like this one. It's stuck in my head, so that's a good sign.
