I'm a huge Coen brothers fan and was looking forward to this movie. A physics professor seeks advice from several rabbis when his life begins to fall apart. However, in typical cynical Coen brothers fashion, there is no solace from religion and, in fact, things go from bad to worse. I agree completely with the message of this movie (There's nobody watching over you directing your life. Life is a combination of your own actions and chance.). However, it wasn't nearly as enjoyable as Fargo or The Big Lebowski.
My rating: *** (out of 5)
