The Coen Brothers, NPR and Religion
Posted December 21, 2009
On Sunday’s Weekend Edition, Cathleen Falsani, the author of The Dude Abides: The Gospel According to the Coen Brothers, talked about to find the theological center to the films of the dynamic directing duo. Of course, the touched on A Serious Man:
"People say their worlds are chaotic, but I see a definite rhythm to good and bad," Falsani says. "If you do something, there is an effect. When you make a choice and you make the wrong choice, you're going to get it in their world. And then sometimes, as in the case of A Serious Man, even if you don't make the wrong choice, you still might get it."
To hear the full interview, go to NPR. Also check out the exclusive piece, Ms. Falsani wrote for FilmInFocus, “Everybody Hurts: The Universal Appeal of the Coen Brothers.”
