My thought on today

10 Responses

  1. The Uncertainty Principle. It proves we can’t ever really know… what’s going on. So it shouldn’t bother you. Not being able to figure anything out. Although you will be responsible for this on the mid-term.

    I heart Larry Gopnik.

  2. But I don’t want Santana Abraxas!

    (Watched this for the second time two nights ago)

  3. I am so with you on that thought. I wish there was never a subjects called linguistics.

    • @ CC — That’s my second favorite quote from “A Serious Man.” The first is this: “We all want the answer! But Hashem doesn’t owe us the answer. Hashem doesn’t owe us anything.” Talk about a whop-you-on-the-head true statement. None of that “God will answer your prayers” B.S.

      @ Hatter — The more I see this film, the more I like it. And the less I understand it. Go figure.

      @ Encore — I have a friend who’s getting her Ph.D. in “linguistics.” Just to piss her off, sometimes I ask: “So what are you gonna DO with that?” The classes I suffered through in grad school are the ones she liked.

  4. Have yet to see this again after theatres, but will be soon. I’ve never laughed so much during a dark comedy.

  5. An epic example of how wrong I can be. I love the Coens, but left this one with nothing but ill-feeling towards it. It made me feel cold and distanced, not knowing the religion or the imagery. On second viewing it turned into a thoroughly enjoyable film, and I guess I’ve seen it three more times since, and enjoy it more each time.

  6. Hi Meredith, it’s meme time again. I tagged you for the Versatile Blog Award: http://wp.me/pxXPC-1Cf Hope you have time to do it.

  7. Oh gosh. If you become all cryptic like “A Serious Man,” I’m going to have to find away to become God and just smite you, Job.

  8. Meredith!!!!! NO. The best line will always, ALWAYS be “This is not about whoppsie, doopsie.” Best line and line delivery.

  9. Whenever someone asks me about the meaning of the film, I repeat the important line from the Korean student’s father: “Accept the mystery”.
