Reviews
Mine: Interesting movie. As always from the Coen Brother you are always wondering what is going to happen next. Top notch performances from the entire cast. The humor here come from a profound discomfort watching people twist themselves this way and that to fit in and be regarded seriously, whether situationally, socially or religiously. This will have you thinking long afterwards, especially considering the odd prologue and the ending which bookend a remarkable work.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A black comedy centered on Larry Gopnik, a Midwestern professor who watches his life unravel when his wife prepares to leave him because his inept brother won't move out of the house.
