Movie Review: Inside Llewyn Davis

  • by

The Coen Brothers are back with their heart-warming holiday tale of a musician in the sixties who pretty much takes advantage of everyone he comes across in any way he can so as to avoid freezing to death.

Merry Christmas from the Entire Coen Family!

Oscar Issac plays the titular role, playing a cynical and barbed folk musician who seems to burn every bridge he ever crosses, and he’s cross about pretty much everything. In his journey to make a living wage at what he loves doing the most, he comes across lots of real ‘characters’. Expect appearances by Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, F. Murray Abraham, Garrett Hedlund, Adam Driver, and, of course, the unforgettable John Goodman.

But how does it fair with The Unusual Suspects? Martin, JC and Chris are here to divvy up the review loot and let you know if that critical praise you’ve been hearing is real or just a false alarm.
