    Barton Fink is simply marvelous. Now I might need to watch it this weekend…

    Speaking of critique, just saw “An Education.” Carey was good but my was I a little disappointed in Nick Hornby’s script.

    SPOILER ALERT: The character of Jenny would have never gone back to David after discovering that he stole the map. I didn’t believe it, nor did I believe she was actually attractive to him, but rather attractive to the world he was introducing her to. This made her acceptance of his proposal even more baffling. Also, the introduction of the characters felt rushed.

    That being said, Alfred Molina and Rosamund Pike were a delight. I will have to wait to see Precious, Julia, Bright Star (which looks hella boring) and Julie & Julia, but I can’t say with conviction that Carey gave the best female performance of the year.

    I just saw “A Serious Man” and that is one hairy-chested film. I thought it was as resonant and thought-provoking as anything the Coens have ever done.
