DVD Review: Inside Llewyn Davis
The Coen Brothers can be hit and miss for me at times, but this easily has to be the worst film of there's I've ever seen. It's not bad by any means, it's just plain boring. So boring in fact, that this review isn't really coherent.
Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is a folk singer/songwriter trying to make his way through life. He's a total asshole, so I had a hard time trying to like him. Carey Mulligan is in this for awhile, usually cursing at Davis for being a total prick. Garrett Hedlund and John Goodman show up later as well as a fellow writer and musician respectively.
Literally the only thing going for this film is it's music. Isaac has a great voice, and I enjoyed hearing him sing. But the songs weren't enough. The movie felt like it dragged and the plot just wasn't that interesting. I'm glad I didn't catch this one in theaters, I think I would've been even more disappointed then.
