I don’t even know why there’s a trailer for this. It certainly doesn’t need to be this freaking good. Aren’t we at the point where you can have a trailer where it’s nothing but the words, “The Coen Brothers have a new film. It’s called ‘A Serious Man’. See it or you’re stupid and you smell funny,”? I mean, I never took a class in marketing but I don’t think the Coens going up to a camera and throwing their Oscars and past films at the lens would be out of line. They are legends and I was going to see “A Serious Man” no matter what. Seeing a trailer like this just makes it worse. I’d hold a grudge against the guys but that’s impossible.
See the trailer after the jump not because you need convincing but because you were going to anyway.
