The latest offering from cinema's famous siblings.

...who have been making films together for 30 years - is an elegy to the folk music scene in 1960s New York.

Set during one wintry week in 1961, Inside Llewyn Davis stars Oscar Isaac as the titular singer-songwriter who is struggling to make a living after the death of his former musical partner. The film has picked up two Oscar nominations - for best cinematography and best sound mixing.

As Inside Llewyn Davis opens this week, Joel and Ethan Coen talk about losers, live music and the joys of vinyl.

Their art has been commended as being strongly vaginal - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-25816580 ... which bothers some men.

Any one seen "Inside Llewyn Davis" yet. It looks very promising from revues, which of course you can never believe. For instance the Margaret Thatcher film "Iron Lady"  was advertising itself as the best film of 2012 on it's posters placed around London Underground in December 2011.

Everything I see about it though makes it more and more interesting.

Yeah I've seen it M5. I think in another thread I mentioned that John Goodman came down and offer an early screening of the film. I must say it isn't like any of there other films. At first I wasn't too fond of it, but I think I need to see it again in order to formulate a better opinion.

And John Goodman is hilarious in the film btw

I understand it's another variation on their favourite theme the loser.

I personally never expect any of their films to be a once only experience.

I like the idea of this one.

  • Hey careful man there's a beverage here!
This film looks very interesting. As a guitar player/songwriter myself, all I can say is good thing I don't rely on music to eat or keep warm, because if I did I'd be starving and cold!

The wife and I watched it last night. I enjoyed it (7.8/10) but it was too slow for her (prolly, like, 3/10).

It's an interesting piece. Very atmospheric, character-driven, and, I have to assume, of the time it portrays. Like most Coehn works, it's layered and more complex than it first appears. I won't ruin the movie for anyone but I noted (and enjoyed) several structural parallels and references to a work by James Joyce. There are also several great folksongs. I don't know shit about the genre but appreciated how haunting and simple the performances were.

So, yeah, it's definitely work catching.
