A Serious Man (2009)

Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) is a practicing Jew who seeks answers from his faith when his life starts to unravel - but every answer he receives is unsatisfactory to him. The best thing about this film is the myriad ways it could be interpreted. As I watched it, I thought it was mostly about the failure of religion to provide an answer to life's chaos - but the ending had me questioning that. It was very funny, too, and Richard Kind has a good role (I'm always happy to see Richard Kind - he never disappoints.)
