  • Inside Llewyn Davis

    2013. USA. Directed by Ethan and Joel Coen. Inside Llewyn Davis, the story of a singer-songwriter struggling for his music to be heard and a pitch-perfect evocation of the early 1960s New York folk scene, stands in the pantheon of great Coen brothers movies. Inspired, presumably, by Bob Dylan’s wonderfully evocative memoir Chronicles, and by the careers of Dave Van Ronk and other local folk heroes of the time, the film marks a startling breakthrough for the actor Oscar Isaac in the titular role, along with wry comic turns by Cary Mulligan as his vitriolic on-and-off girlfriend, John Goodman as a Falstaffian dope fiend—and one of the finest film performances by an orange tabby cat in one of the most beautiful train sequences in cinema history.
