Deadspin

This might be the Coen Brothers' best film. I suspect they think so too. Even if you sense they can't quite grasp what they've stumbled across here, and surely don't want to.

Movie Talk

For all the droll wit on display, it's hard to warm to the Coens' chilly parable. Is Larry's suffering the work of God or the Devil, or just the random chaos of an indifferent universe? Arch-ironists to their fingertips, the Coens aren't telling.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

I guess gleeful misanthropy wasn't enough for the Coen Brothers. Now they want to make it clear that God ... excuse me, Hashem ... is an unforgiving bastard.

Brilliant but bleak comedy for mature Coen brothers fans.

Joel and Ethan Coen love to play God; they put their characters through hell, torturing them endlessly and treating them with disdain before finally giving them peace (usually through death, madness or some form of imprisonment).

Cinema Autopsy

[A] film to be intuitively understood on an almost gut level and discussing it at length later to unravel its nuances is part of the pleasure of seeing such a film.

The Coens may play around with that tradition, they may disparage it or mock it. But they are irrevocably a part of it, and that's all to the good.

A sincerely sympathetic portrait of an American family man in crisis -- even as it insults its characters and derides their culture.

If you're puzzled by the Coen Brothers' horrific comedies, this is the closest thing you'll get to an explanation.

It's serious about the craft of storytelling, both in form and function, with a dedication to characterization, pitch-perfect performances, and a cinematic backdrop that is both severely nostalgic and completely immersive.

It's definitely a film worth seeing.

In terms of putting a protagonist through the wringer, the directors haven't been quite this cruel since Barton Fink, a film which shares A Serious Man's penchant for extremely black - actually, make that bleak - humor.

Looking Closer

A Serious Man is several barrels full of laughs. But it's as serious-minded about suffering and misfortune as any film I've seen.

The Coens the way I like them. This is their second best film after The Man Who Wasn't There.

Moving Pictures Magazine

In this Coen brothers comedy, a good-hearted, Midwestern family man finds his life unraveling at work and at home although he's done nothing to deserve it.

Una farsa genial, con aires de tragedia, que resulta en una brillante alegoría sobre la condición humana. Una más para el podio de lo mejor de los Coen.

Simultaneamente divertido, melancólico e angustiante, Um Homem Sério é um filme de adultos para adultos.
