I like films, but that's okay. Starting from scratch and only reviewing films as I watch them.

    Watched with Hannah, we both had a pretty good time. 

    Near the end, she took one of her socks off and she chased me around, trying to make me smell it.

    Really like how this looks, and I enjoyed the pacing and long takes, but I didn’t feel as engrossed as I would’ve liked. 

    Looking forward to seeing more from the director though.

    ★★★★★

    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.

    ★★½

    There’s a lot of good stuff in here, and at times it’s incredibly moving, but the use of racial stereotyping, homophobic caricature and some outright racism is very unpleasant and detracts from the good work he’s doing.
