Inside Llewyn Davis is the new film by the Coen Brothers, the makers of movies like No Country For Old MenO’ Brother Where Art ThouRaising Arizona and The Big Lebowski. In the Coen’s latest Americana opus, we are transported back to 1960s New York City where we find Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), a folk artist who recently hit a wall when his longtime musical partner met an untimely end.

Wandering from couch to couch, gig to gig (and in the artistic and spiritual sense), Llewyn tries find himself in this new stage of life and career – while also trying to track down a friend’s lost cat.

Already earning 3 nominations for the 2014 Golden GlobesInside Llewyn Davis is a must-see for anyone who consider him/herself a fan of the Coen’s work, as this might be some of their more honest and personal works yet. Besides Isaacs, the film stars Carey Mulligan (Great Gatsby), Justin Timberlake, Adam Driver (Girls), Garret Hedlund (On the Road) and John Goodman.

  1. Loved O Brother Where Art Thou? If this is half as good as that, it will be worth seeing.

  2. I already saw this flick. It is clearly one of the best of the year, and maybe the best Coen Brothers film. It does not have much of Oh Brother’s tone. It is more similar to A Serious Man.

    • Do you know why, specifically, it is rated R? The trailer makes it look relatively harmless…

      • Why its rated R you ask?

        Well… with the exception of Oh Brother Where Art Thou (and I guess True Grit) the Coen Bros films are pretty cussy. Lots of f-words and the like. If you had seen The Big Lebowski then you would know what I mean. The official MPAA dealio says Inside Llewyn Davis is R for “language including some sexual references”

        So its just language and maybe a bit of raunchy sex talk.

  3. The R rating is due to language and sexual content. It’s a fairly tame picture. There is just a lot of swearing and implications. Nothing too bad

    • you beat me to it :) but you’ve actually seen it so I prbly should have just let you answer haha.. I wanna see it sometime this week.
