Jewish Conspiracy

There are some out there who think that Hollywood is run by a huge Jewish conspiracy. Usually, however, they are people who wear brown shirts and think that the Holocaust was a lie. I used to joke with my sister that no matter what films were nominated for Best Documentary, it would always be a film about the Holocaust that would win. I usually got that right.

I bring this up because over the weekend we watched the movie "A Serious Man" which is up for Best Picture at next weekend's Oscars. I had heard very little about this movie except that it was from the Coen Brothers who gave us such great movies as "Fargo," "The Big Lebowski," and "No Country for Old Men." This movie should have been rated "J" for overtly Jewish content. I followed along with the story waiting for some sort of payoff. If you thought that the ending was abrupt for "No Country..." then you will absolutely freak out at the end of this movie. I don't know what point they were trying to prove, but they certainly failed with myself and Kitty. We both yelled out, "WTF?!?" at the end. Sure. The movie makes you think at the end. It makes you think, "What the hell did I watch for the last 105 minutes?!?" To have this nominated for Best Picture certainly makes me want to suspect a Jewish conspiracy because it was far from what I would call great cinema. Heck, I would vote for "Avatar" over this train wreck. It had elements of being a great film, but it had to deliver SOMETHING! Has anyone out there seen this movie? What was your opinion? What do you think the plot was all about? All I can come up with was that it was a modern day telling of the story of Job.
