Movie Preview: A Serious Man by the Coen Brothers


Seeing as this one minute, 40-second teaser trailer for the Coen brothers' latest film, A Serious Man, is like a little short film in itself, I can say with certainty that I'll be eagerly waiting in line for this one come October. The synopsis: "A black comedy set in 1967 and centered on Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg), a Midwestern professor who watches his life unravel when his wife prepares to leave him because his inept brother (Richard Kind) won't move out of the house." Seeking some kind of balance, Larry approaches three different rabbis for advice.

In the trailer, the sounds of destruction, confusion, and desperation in this man's life weave together to make a mesmerizing kind of music. It looks dark and weird and funny — everything we've come to expect from the Coens. A Serious Man opens in limited release Oct. 2. To check out the trailer,
