good: Smart Comedy

This is an inexplicably and philosophically dark comedy.Its protagonist, Larry, is a lackluster professor at a dull university. Then his life starts to unravel: his wife decides to leave him for one of his more successful colleagues; his unemployed brother moves in to stay on his couch.So Larry ventures on a quest for meaning and clarity within his Jewish community.All Cohen Brothers fans will appreciate the movie's aesthetics and comedic strength. The protagonist’s struggle will resonate with anyone who has had a religious upbringing: guilt is a big theme here.I felt like I had to rewatch it to understand it. But I also enjoyed that weird sense of not understanding everything that's going on. Much like life itself.The film rightfully earned itself two nominations for the Oscars, including Best Picture.
