Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)

US/France, 105m, Colour
Directors: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen; Cast: Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Justin Timberlake, Adam Driver

inside-llewynInside Llewyn Davis is a witty and dark dramatic comedy about a struggling folk singer in the early 1960s whose personal and professional lives are at constant odds. Following Llewyn from one disaster to another, this film is an in-depth character study with little plot, and even less of a conclusion. The film’s intentionally bleak mood is punctuated by comic relief related to a missing cat which wryly provides some purpose and plot for the melancholic folk singer who seems no further ahead by the film’s end, than he was at the start (Klaus Ming May 2016).

    You liked this quite a bit more than I did. I’m constantly surprised at just how much love this film gets. I think it’s lesser Coen Brothers, and not one I’m looking to spend any more time with in the future.
