The crowds at the Toronto International Film Festival have just seen “A Serious Man” set and shot in the Twin Cities. Cinematical has this early glowing review.
It describes the film as the culmination of the Coen brothers 25 years of film making:
It grabs the magic of local flavor and charm we saw in “Fargo” with a cast widely filled with unknown names (that pack as much of a cinematic punch as any star-studded roster you can think of), to the rapidly escalating drama of “Burn After Reading.” A Serious Man is cohesive and slick from stem to stern.
The film opens in Minneapolis, New York and Los Angeles on October 2nd.
And just in case you haven’t seen it, here is the trailer for the film.
