My Facebook status post from this morning has generated a few comments, so I thought a quick blog post would be in order.

On the walk in to work this morning I noticed that the street a couple of blocks from the house was full of trucks and trailers. It turned out that the street was in the process of being transformed into a movie set, and that it’s for the new Coen Brothers movie, A Serious Man. In fact as I was walking by and checking out what was going on, Ethan Coen himself walked right by me (he seemed fairly preoccupied, or maybe just cold, so it didn’t seem the right time to be quoting Big Lebowski lines at him (warning – sweary words in that link)).

It looked like they were planning to film in and around this fantastic building on the corner of LaSalle and Blaisdell:
