Once-sentence movie reviews

“A Serious Man”

Imagine the entire Bible was reduced to the book of Job, and the Coen Brothers did a modern metaphor for that.

Grade: **1/2

“The Invention of Lying”

Spends about an hour answering the question, “What would it be like if the concept of lying didn’t exist?” — hint: HILARIOUS! — then mixes in an implausible love story.

Grade: **

“Up in the Air”

In a recession, it is a timely movie that includes a lot of people getting fired while exploring the idea that people need love, or at the very least, meaningful human interaction.

Grade: *****
