5.0 out of 5 stars The Coen Brothers do sixties folk. April 1 2014
By Tommy Dooley HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Coen Brothers are always going to make an exceptional film, but not always one that you would expect. This falls into the latter category. Set in 1961 we follow a short time in the life of Llewyn Davies; he is barely scraping a living playing bars and hoping to get some royalties. He was in a duo that had shifted some units and then his singing mate jumped off The Washington Bridge.

Then after getting a kicking in an alleyway he gets taken in by a fan – he manages to let their cat escape and so starts a bit of an odyssey carting this cat from place to place till he can reunite it. He is also sleeping on the couch of his best friend Jim (Justin Timberlake) and has been sleeping with Jean – Jim’s wife. Everywhere he goes he seems to make things worse as his sister says he has the Midas Touch in reverse. So he goes on a road trip to Chicago to try his luck there as the New York winter in Greenwich Village seems to hold no joy for him. He takes car share with drug addled jazz musician Roland Turner – John Goodman in a bravura performance.

The songs are done beautifully and Oscar Isaac as Llewyn is a piece of perfect casting – he can sing too and is very engaging. The part players are all spot on and the attention to detail is done with care and an eye for the authentic. The cars are often dirty and the streets look 1960’s New York. This though is not a celebration of ‘folk’ music – it is a rather sad tale of a man trying and not really getting anywhere yet keeping the will to go on. There is a feeling of going round in circles which is exemplified by the ending – as if he will never learn from his mistakes. When it did end I was in two minds about what I felt; I thought on it for a number of days and realised that just because it is hard to pigeon hole does not make this a bad film – it makes you think, it is entertaining, it is a tad depressing and yet it is undoubtedly about life, art and love and as such I can only recommend this highly original film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Ending June 18 2014
By Ben Oboe TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Could the Coen Brothers ever make a film that was not in some way a marvel of the art of film making? Inside Llewyn Davis is the film that proves them as adept at making a dull film as anyone else in cinema. This film is a muddle of pointless navel gazing with nothing to redeem it whatsoever, except perhaps the ending, which at least signals the opportunity to watch something else.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Quite Live Up to Hype Aug. 2 2014
By Blood TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
The Coen brothers have made plenty of notable movies, including "Fargo", "The Big Lebowski", and "No Country for Old Men". Their latest film, "Inside Llewyn Davis", has also been receiving great praise. It has already been nominated for numerous awards, with nods from The Oscars and Golden Globes. Boasting a fantastic cast, it definitely looked like an interesting watch.

Oscar Isaac stars as Llewyn Davis, a young folk-singer navigating his way through the Greenwich Village music scene of 1961. Against heavy obstacles, some of them of his own making, we follow his struggle to make it as a musician. Only spanning a week in his life, the movie falls a bit short.

It has its fair share of awesome songs, but I never really connected with the characters. Llewyn isn't exactly a likeable guy, and it's hard to root for him on his journey. The cinematography and music may be strong, but it doesn't make up for the thin story that never really gets going. Rated R for language, "Inside Llewyn Davis" doesn't quite live up to the hype.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only for Coen Fans May 5 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a person who has tried to watch, enjoy and own all of the Coen brothers' movies, I had to work hard to understand and enjoy, Inside Llewyn Davis. I settled finally on the idea that we were witnessing a character study of a selfish man who constantly abuses friends and their trust. Having lived during the time covered by this story, I can honestly believe that a musician with a bit of talent, but no hook to make him exceptional could live on the fringes of the music scene. Many people of that time period were exceptionally generous and sharing. Llewyn was very good at accessing that generosity but seemingly unwilling to be gracious or reciprocate a kindness. It is a wonderful character development, if you like to cringe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Film March 31 2014
Format:Blu-ray
I liked this movie quite a bit.

For Coen Brothers films, this falls into that elusive Barton Fink/A Serious Man category. I get the feeling with the Coens they make the ones for "me": No Country, True Grit and Burn After Reading, and then they make the ones for them, those being movies like Inside Llewyn Davis. Not complaining, but if they have a "mass audience switch" when they make movies, they switched it off for this one.

I don't have that much to say about this one. Not because I didn't like it, I did. But I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it.

This is a movie with deep meaning and I'd be lying if I said that I got it.

So for now, I'll hit on the surface level aspects.

First one being the performance of Oscar Issac. He is AWESOME in here. Where's his goddamn Oscar nomination? One of the better lead performances in a Coen Brothers film.

The other is the music. This movie is like a semi follow up to O, Brother Where Art Thou? It's half a musical like that film was. I loved all of the music in the film.

Davis' songs in particular are just beautiful.

This is the first movie of 2013 after 12 Years a Slave where I might be bothered to get a hold of the soundtrack.

The screenplay, the dialog. Good. I'm not a huge fan of movies where the main guy is just s*** on for the whole movie. I only like it when he s***s back. And Llewyn does, in his way a few times. This movie would be seriously depressing if he didn't show he's got SOME spine.

The movie's pretty depressing anyway. I don't know if laughs are meant to come with some of his failures in the film or not. But I felt too much for this guy to smile when he screwed up.

The movie looks fantastic.
