Maybe he never should have come down from the roof. He should have just taken a tent up there and never come down... scratch that, I don't think it would have held up to a tornado. On this viewing I realized that it's a bit of the inverse of Cleo From 5 to 7. Cleo learns more about herself and becomes a better person as she waits for her medical results. Michael Stahlbarg's character kind of forgets about the medical test because every single thing in his life falls apart before the results come back. For January's Movie of the Month I compare A Serious Man to Vertigo.
