    Closer in style to smaller scale and more esoteric films in the Coen's canon like "The man who wasn't there", "Barton Fink", and "A serious man", than their more widely received films, it is nevertheless one of their best films in their exceptional 30 year career. Few films have portrayed artistic failure in a way to make it seem inseparable from success and even fewer have had such an unforgiving take on their main character who is consistently arrogant, obnoxious, selfish yet not entirely unsympathetic. The Coen's sardonically demystify the fringe art milieu together with a hellish rendering of an "On the road" inspired journey. Subtle, brilliantly acted and observed, certainly one of the best movies of 2013. 6 years 3 months ago

    I know, I know, I know...marketing. But, Oscar Isaac should have had the poster billing to himself because the movie rests solely on his shoulders for its entire duration.

    Very good, I recommend.
