TGB Breakdown Ep 5: Coen Bros' A Serious Man (Guest: Matt Patches)
by Tim Buel
June 29, 2012
On this episode of The Golden Briefcase Breakdown, Tim & Jeremy are again joined by Matt Patches of Hollywood.com and Operation Kino (just on TGB #115 talking dark comedy) to go over a spoiler-filled discussion on the Coen Brothers' A Serious Man, released in late 2009 after debuting at TIFF. The main purpose of Breakdown episodes is to to ponder, discuss and challenge the films that we feel often need more than just a simple review. We breakdown the film to discuss plots and theories in order to better understand the director's vision and hopefully challenge our listeners at home to re-evaluate the way they watch cinema.
Extra episodes of TGB Breakdown will be arriving about every month, and will appear here in addition to all of our regular weekly Golden Briefcase episodes. Beware - every episode of TGB Breakdown will contain MASSIVE SPOILERS for the film in discussion (this one is for A Serious Man). You've been WARNED!
