I know that some of you hate it when we wax political about anything — as evidence of the W. coverage debacle of late-2008 — but I also know that there are a lot of Coen Brothers fans around here, including yours truly. And those rascally Coens have teamed up with Al Gore’s Reality Campaign to direct a commercial about the truth behind “clean coal.” Now, I’m not an expert on coal or “clean coal,” but I do know that spraying any type of coal around your house is probably a bad idea. Trust me, I’ve tried it.
In other news, The Coen Bros. are also still hard at work on their upcoming film A Serious Man, a black comedy set in 1967 and centered on on Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg), a Midwestern professor who watches his life unravel when his wife prepares to leave him because his inept brother (Richard Kind) won’t move out of the house. That hits theaters on October 2, 2009.
