Show­time Pre­miere, 11.15pm

★★★★ If you are hav­ing one of those days, choose your view­ing time wisely for this black­est of black come­dies. For the cen­tral fig­ure here — a sad-sack Jewish aca­demic with mar­riage, money and faith is­sues — is hav­ing one of those lives. Yet an­other warped mas­ter­piece from the Coen broth­ers (No Coun­try for Old Men), who have a field day with the film’s sub­urbs-in-the-1960s set­ting. Stars Michael Stuhlbarg. L.P.
