Inside Llewyn Davis

Inside Llewyn Davis, 2013. A 1960's folksinger isn't going anywhere.

Written & directed by Ethan & Joel Coen. Starring Oscar Isaac.

Concept: C
Story: D
Characters: B
Dialog: Strangely unremarkable for the Coens. B
Pacing: D
Cinematography: A
Special effects/design: B
Acting: B
Music: A
Enjoyment: I'm reluctant to say I liked this. It's boring and plotless and lacking anything that I responded strongly to. But apart from the lack of a story, everything's done very well, and the music's good enough to make it worth watching (and possibly re-watching). B

GPA: 2.7/4
