5.0 out of 5 stars No punchline here. January 20, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
(This review is for the theatrical release.)

I've read a lot of commentary about Inside Llewyn Davis failing to deliver a pay-off. Oddly, this was one of the aspects of the film I enjoyed the most. It is devoid of the glamour and artifice of an uplifting underdog story; Llewyn's story begins and ends in the same alley, no redemption found, his only prize the blood on his lips. Throughout the film, there were many moments I found myself wishing Llewyn would just say, or just do, this instead of that, find a way to overcome his weaknesses and flaws. But he always says, or does, exactly as Llewyn would do.

This is what I find so refreshing about the film, the screenplay driving it and the performances delivering it. The characters on-screen act with the same perplexing unpredictability as we all do. They never know just what to say to each other. They talk at each other rather than to each other. They are weak, and often unlikeable, and often uncomfortably vulnerable. Our expectations as an audience, sculpted by decades of formulaic Joseph Campbell-driven story arcs, are of no consequence here.

I think our desire for packages with bows on them stems from our yearning for life to follow suit. But it doesn't, does it? We are all little islands of feeling trying desperately and confusedly to express some sort of identity and to find a voice that will connect us to others.

I think it is essential to the film that we don't know the details of Llewyn's story. His relationship with Jean, his estrangement from his father, the loss of his musical partner; these things are vague hints, and as such, we can't take sides. We can't make Llewyn a hero or a villain. And so we must perceive him only as a man.

Format:DVD
This review is fairly lengthy but I think those interested in the "Folk Music" aspect of the film will find it worth reading.

First, a point of information: Amazon has a policy to group all reviews of ALL formats of a film (in theaters,streaming,DVD, and BD) together. It is important to note which version the reviewer is commenting on and to note the date of the review (you can sort by Newest First.) With that said, this is a review of the DVD. It will not be released until March 11, 2014 but I was sent a copy by the studio in advance. I did see the film in the theater in December and my review of the film itself will be based on what I wrote then. The film on the DVD is no different. And, I'm told that Bluray has the same "Special Feature" and the print should be the same. In an "about face" from my usual reviews, I will discuss the "Bonus Features" - since there are 26 reviews before mine about the film itself.

The "bonuses" are really singular: One 42-minute "making of" featurette titled "Inside Inside Llewyn Davis". There is not a trailer - or even previews of other films. While much of it concerns the music in the film and how the pre-recording was done in a studio for "practice", though the performances in the film were done "live on set", there are interviews with both Coens, the costume designer and music producer T Bone Burnett. The rehearsal scenes appeared jump on my HD TV screen and the sharpness varied throughout the featurette. One thing you notice when scenes from the film are included is that the Coens used lots of muted blues and greens in the color palette. They are in sharp contrast from the brighter colors (though still not very bright) of the interview scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where's its scrotum, Llewyn? Where's its scrotum? February 2, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
That line by Mrs. Gorfein as she accusingly displays the undercarriage of the wrong cat still cracks me up. Besides being by turns deliciously moody and hilarious, this movie boasts a boatload of other reasons to watch it not just once but many times. New York City is a knockout on screen thanks to some seriously crafty camerawork and all the characters are stylishly and inventively filmed. The music itself is folk music obviously but some of it ain't too shabby and the song Please Mr. Kennedy is a priceless slice of time warp. Am falling asleep at the keys here so I'll come back tomorrow and continue my roomy nations. Well it's tommorrow now and boy did it ever snow in the interim: New York in February can be a big fat smorsgaborgy of intensely winterised weather conditions and it's just occurred to me that this movie here also takes place in New York in February coz when Llewyn is signing papers for the session fee I think I caught a glimpse of the date on one of the forms. Jeepers, no wonder Lewyn was a tad splenetic about not having an overcoat. But back to how atmospherically handsome this film looks: Ace cinematographer Roger Deakins has worked his lenser's magic for the Coen boys in a bunch of their previous pictures but here the brothers opted for some French dude, Bruno Delbonnel, and the result is totally tray tray bong: The look is expressively lit nighttime mostly but even the scenes in what daylight there is are beautifully framed and coolly washed out. Acting is top-shelf all round with Oscar Isaac in particular playing a blinder in the lead role. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Natured Character Study
Generally entertaining movie. Not many real points of high drama or good laughs. It's a good natured trip through the New York folk music scene of the early 1960's.

The actors and acting are great in this movie. The story is about losers......I can see some dark humor in it, or identify on some levels, but overall this is not my kind of movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific movie
I thought Inside Llewyn Davis was one of the best movies of 2013. The music is very well done, and Oscar Isaac did an excellent job in the title role. Gotta love the Coen's.
