Maybe The Airplane will finally get the recognition they deserve! I didn't see A Serious Man, but a lot of people have told me that it was great. Of course, most of them said they liked it because of the soundtrack...

Well, as an equal fan of J.A and the Coen Brothers films, this is a definite see!

What can I say, ALL HAIL THE CRIMSON KING!

That doesnt mean I enjoy them more than Jefferson Airplane, ofcourse!

I don't know why I keep calling it "Simple Man" but "A Serious Man" is a must see for any J.A. fan.

Bill Thompson is listed in the Thanks credits. I won't spoil the rest if you havn't seen it.

I like the line "No Jew was harmed in making this movie"! :)

the movie is ok (And I am a big fan of the brothers) but the best thing about it is hearing Jefferson Airplane :D
