Great writting, the movie caught attention full-on from the beginning but I was expecting it to be a bit more extensive in order to explore some issues in mind. The ending was disapointing. Loved the fact that Jefferson Airplane was everywhere. Visually stimulating
The Coen brothers are some of the best storytellers working on this busines, they fucking know how to craft stories and how to develop them. On overall, this flick is very good, but there are two thing I think that could have been better: the dialogues are not as fresh, as quirky and as memorable as the dialogues the brothers usually write and they could have gone deeper with the secondary characters.
A film that adopts for its characters a Jewish heritage to praise mysterism and "the question as more important than the answer." It's a re-imagining of the biblical tale of Job, which for some historical times was an effective morality tale. But the worship today of the obscure as an insoluble mystery is detrimental. Larry remains surprised because he's apathetic and seeks only psychological, not practical, help.
