This should be good! The Coen brothers will teaming up with Michael Chabon for the movie version of “The Yiddish Policemen’s Union”, an alternative-reality, hard-boiled detective noir thriller set in Alaska. Chabon’s book is the best thing I read all year. Of course, the Coen brothers know how to do film noir, as they demonstrated with their very first movie, Blood Simple, another of my all time favorites. So, despite the fact that winter is doing a serious number on my overall mood, this is something to be cheerful about!
