I like films, but that's okay. Starting from scratch and only reviewing films as I watch them.
I mean, it’s John Wick 1/Home Alone with Bob Odenkirk. That will either sell you on the film, or make sure you never watch it.
As someone who has been burgled (twice!), maybe there’s a part of me that just liked the idea of someone getting some form of closure (even through violent means) after an event like that.
Anyway, perfectly fine b-movie with a good cast.
Clouds aren’t shaped like animals and there is no face in your porridge. Signs are just coincidences that we try and attribute meaning to.
A Serious Man is about a patch of bad luck and the meaning we try and pull from the wreckage of a life.
It’ll never be talked about in the same way as Fargo or the Big Lebowski, but in many ways this is a real masterpiece. It’s a small film, beautifully shaped and realised, full of petty human moments.
