Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film from Academy Award winners Joel and Ethan Coen, follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961.
Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac, Drive) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles--some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn's misadventures take him from the baskethouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club--on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul--and back again.
Brimming with music performed by Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyn's married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis--in the tradition of O Brother, Where Art Thou?--is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place.

The film explores its title character who is central to every scene and who receives a remarkable performance from Oscar Isaac Davis is a young, bearded shabbily dressed singer and guitarist whose performing partner has just committed suicide. The suicide is a major part of Davis' depression and difficulty. He struggles to make it on his own through poverty, rejection, and finding places with friends and acquaintances to spend the night. He has slept with a young woman who has become pregnant and agrees to fund an abortion. He also acquires a tabby cat who apparently belongs to a well-to-do couple who admire his music and help him out. The cat becomes Davis' companion for much of the film.
The movie invites reflection on Davis' life. He is self-centered with a probably unjustified regard for his talents and at the same time unambitious. He has a gift for alienating people. At the same time, he appears to be devoted to his music to a much greater degree than other faddish or commercial musicians and their fans. He is a loner with little education and some background in the Merchant Marine which he shares with his aged, near -comatose father.
There are many bitingly satirical scenes in the film as well as many moments of sadness. The film is slowly paced with shadowy cinematography on New York streets and clubs and on a mad road trip that Davis takes to Chicago and back. The movie uses a great deal of symbolism with the cat, a shadowy, violent stranger, and above all the music. The film gets "inside" Llewyn Davis by its in-depth portrayal. Some will see Davis as a modestly talented, self-centered, and dislikable figure while others will see him as a person of artistic and personal integrity who is struggling to make his way. So to with folk music and the years of the early 1960s. However one understands Llewyn Davis and folk music, the film makes clear that he, unlike other performers, will not become successful.
This is a thoughtful, sad, beautifully done film about a loner whose ambitions almost surely exceed his abilities. The film also takes a probing look at the ambitions themselves. It is a sad film that poignantly explores tensions in the way many Americans tried to understand themselves in the mid-late 20th Century.
For me this was subtle film the characters are all well drawn out, what you have is a decent and relatively original narrative. For this is a casual tragedy and hubris of the journeyman musician The Coen Brothers have made another pretty decent movie.You have to just love the cat that Davis takes pretty much everywhere in his travels. The odyssey of his journey and the misadventures we see him go through, are what makes this film really work. Add into the mix a very well done soundtrack, the film is cat friendly and the result makes for very good entertainment.
