Item Details

Follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Issac) is at a crossroads and struggling to make is as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles- some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, Llewyn's misadventures take him from the baskethouses of Greenwich Village to an empty Chicago club- on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul- and back again. Brimming with music performed by Issac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis is an epic on an intimate scale.

Coen bros have definitely done better than this. That being said, it is still an enjoyable film and better than most of the garbage out there. Even mediocre Coen brothers fare is better than 95% of movies.

Thought this was great film, watch it with low expectations and then watch it again. Like most Coen movies takes a second to let it sink in.

this one definitely falls into the "trailer is way better than the movie" category -- the "Inside Inside" feature is more compelling than the movie ... really disappointing

Not one of my favorite Coen movies. Character is not likeable or talented. He's a sort of pathetic soul with no redeeming qualities.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

An excellent representation of the 1960's NYC folk scene.

maybe I got too old for quirky. such a slow pace and an unsatisfying end. what did it mean? Groundhog Day?

Little to watch or listen except the trying times of one narcissistic folk musician who insisted to play solo in the early 1960. Unfortunately, he lacked the genius of a college dropout Bob Dylan who had just moved to NYC and begun to play in local clubs, Four stars for John Goodman who got the best dialogues, see sample in quote.

this movie was not one of the better Coen brothers movies. I was looking forward to seeing it b/c it was one of theirs but was disappointed. this movie was slow, awkward and sometimes painful to watch. the main character was neither likeable or unlikeable. he was just a lonely and talented musician/drifter who had no defined reason for being so.

Davis: Don't give me rules. You
play what you play.
Goodman: Well, you don't, but in jazz, you know, we play all the notes.
Twelve notes in a scale, dipshit,
not three chords on a ukulele.
G, G, C, G. ... C, D, G.
Well, if you make a living
at it, more power to you. ...
Solo act?
Davis: Yeah, now.
Goodman: Now?
Used to, what,
work with the cat?
Every time you play a C
major, he'd puke a hair ball?

Jean: "Do you ever think about the future at all?!?" Llewyn Davis: ".. The future? You mean like flying cars? Hotels on the moon? Tang?"
