When we first started dating, I (Ariel) wrote a piece about the Coen Brothers’ A Serious Man for a retrospective on their work at TIFF Bell Lightbox. So, as these were the early days of our relationship, Bob wanted to spend time with me while I worked, and decided to watch the movie while I took notes. He was not prepared, and spent the majority of the time doing double-takes between me and the TV, as if searching for hints as to why I was laughing so hard. He just didn’t get it. Now, almost five years later, he sat down and watched it again, now with a bit more experience with Jewish culture. And by Job, I think he’s got it.
