So why have I given it 5 stars? The protagonist is unlikeable, the film sometimes falls into self indulgence and there is that lack of narrative drive that Coen Brothers movies sometimes lapse into. But, it also captures the life of the artist fantastically well. Oscar Isaac inhabits the part of Llewyn Davis to the extent that I simply can't imagine anyone else playing him. The other members of the cast also do a great job; Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan and John Goodman all play their parts well, but Isaac has the stand out performance. He is fascinating to watch, I found him a charismatic live performer, but his character hasn't found success and is wearing out the patience of friends as he camps on their sofas.

The Coen Brothers are without parallel in summoning up mood and investing places with poetry. I have watched this twice and will watch it again. It also benefits from having a great piece on the making of the film on the DVD which gaves some real insight into how the brothers work on their films.

If you like the more mood oriented Coen brothers films you'll like this, if you don't you won't.

Negative reviews deterred me from watching this for some time, but I shouldn't have let them. This is an aesthetically striking independent film about the disconnect between talent and success, about depression and sacrifice and the curdling of youthful dreams, and about failure in America, a pitiless place when it comes to that. It is not an attempt to tell the whole story of the Greenwich Village folk scene, or to recreate the sixties, and if you watch it for that reason you won't get it. It is also an intelligent and adult film in its sense of the complexity of its characters and their activities. The interiority is the interiority of a depressed mind. Plenty of randomness and borderline absurdity along the way, as well.

Oh my god, how I love this movie. I love this movie so much that, the minute, it finishes, I consider putting it on again. I have pretty much always been a Coen Brothers fan. With a couple of exceptions, the likes of Intolerable Cruelty and The Ladykillers. They are total masters of their craft and they have created so many weird and wonderful worlds. I love their comedies, I love their dark dramas. I don't mind they made me listen to bluegrass music. You get the idea. This, though, for me is one of their best. The cast is fantastic, the tone is spot on, the music and the dialogue and the feel of the movie just work together near perfectly. There are sections of it that feel like they're set in a world of parables and subtext, like the sequence featuring another classic performance by John Goodman. This movie really is one of my all time favourites.
If you're not sure about watching this I won't lecture you and, if you don't like it, I won't break my back defending it. I love it too much for that. I'm blinkered by it. What I would suggest is this; watch the trailer. If you like the look of the trailer they ran in cinemas before it came out, then you will like the movie.
Man, I may just have to watch it again now.

This is very much a week in a life of musician Llewyn Davis, our main character lives on other peoples sofas in Greenwich Village (New York city) of the 1960s. He is struggling to make it as an artist, with cat in tow our Llewyn Davis needs to make his career a success, however, the odds are against him - much of the obstacles he faces are pretty much of his own making. He tries his best, to get whatever he can; he is very much beholden to both friends and strangers to eke out his living. His journey takes him from the Village to Chicago - to hopefully get a contract with a musical agent, one Bud Grossman.

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.

Despite a journey into the 'surreal', courtesy of their most recent efforts, I remain a big fan of most Coen brothers films; excepting the rather pointless/ineffective 'The Ladykillers' and 'Gambit', they have many good points with some ('Fargo', 'No Country for Old Men') bordering on brilliance.

Following the good (but very weird) 'A Serious Man', a return to something approaching Coen 'normality' courtesy of the very good 'True Grit' (and then skipping 'Gambit') has proven to be somewhat short-lived with this most recent disc release - I think it is often as enigmatic as 'A Serious Man' and, due in no small part to an emphasis on musicality, is potentially as 'inaccessible' for many; but especially as it is particularly slow-paced.....

A bonus is that on Blu-ray the presentation of 'Inside Llewyn Davis' is very good, with a sumptuous and well-defined picture to depict the mostly very dark scenes and/or 'spotlit' interiors.

I am able to state with certainty how good the almost pastel palette and dark surroundings of this film are portrayed to us in HD as I also own the DVD, which shows things to be positively 'murky' and blurred - watch this film in SD and you are missing a massive element of it's production 'intentions'....

However, despite there being a lot of musicality in the soundtrack, as it is rarely very involved or spatial I don't think the Blu-ray DTS-HD Master Audio variant offers much more than the DD5.1 of the DVD.

The overall plot is not that complicated and the Amazon synopsis does a good job without any spoilers; however, the detail is where the weirdness of this film is revealed, and there are more than the usual number of occurrences to provoke thought and differences in understanding amongst us....
