All the visual gloss of an art film, but it isn't. Inside Llewyn Davis relies almost entirely on contrivances (chasing a cat, losing the car keys) and has no real plot to speak of.

For me, the Coen brothers are a massive hit and miss duo. They've made some great movies, but also some absolute shitfests, thankfully, this movie is the former. As a great lover of folk music, it was a real pleasure seeing this movie do it so well, every song in this movie is great, wasn't a fan of that Bob Dylan easter egg in the end though, felt highly out of place and kinda cheap.

Oscar Isaac caught my eye in Ex Machina, where he carried the film the best he could. He was great in this film too, once again carrying the whole film, damn shame he decided to go for the big boy dollarinos in Satyr Wars. On the other hand, the cinematography is really beautiful and kinda unique in style.

The balance between drama and comedy is seamless, best featured during the scene where Oscar Isaacs character sings to his father, where the mood went from soul-crushing to very lighthearted in an instant. Same kind of balance keeps showing during the whole scene with John Goodman, whose character feels a bit too John Goodmanish for my liking.

The way how the movie is even structured like a folk song really pleased me, it starts with this violent scene after which you start to get these little stories that lead back to the violence, but this time around, you have so much more knowledge of the violent act. And where as the last scene in Whiplash, the other great music film of the past years, was invigorating and powering, the last scene in this film was sad and thought-provoking.

Also, the cat was nice. I like cats. Very good cat. Cat cat cat, catty cat cat. Needed more cats. Cat.

interesting, atmospheric and great soundtrack but the supporting cast was really under-utilised.

a slight disappointment from the Coen brothers is perhaps just perfect for a movie largely about failure
