  • The Man Who Wasn't There

    A Coen Brother's if you like their other work you will probably like this! I thought it was an excellent movie and touches on some interesting themes. On the surface it seems like the story of a simple man who gets caught up in an ever increasing complex web of events set off by one rash action (I'm being deliberately vague!)... but the movie eventually suggests some much deeper ideas and themes, many of which are the bedrocks of quantum physics. The only thing I did not like is that these themes are at times stated in very obvious ways, as if the film makers wanted to be absolutely certain you "get it". Nonetheless, it's nice to see a movie that really delves into some of the strange ideas of modern science and modern living.

    I'm a big fan of the Coen brothers' work. In fact, I should add them to my list in the "how you know it's going to be a good movie" thread.
