not compelling at all. an absolute bore. written like it was written by the pool while drunk. \"let's write a move to make money\". garbage

It is like the trek for a self-published author who took 20 years to write his war story. The book ends up in a box in his tiny bedroom, squeezed in beside his over-sized bed, facing no pictures on the wall. It ends in a circle like some existential movies. At least it ends. A downer no doubt.

Bought the soundtrack CD. To those who complained about the music, I will concede that the songs were better within the context of the movie. I'm not sure if all of the songs made it on the album. 4 out of 14 are still very good, and the previously unreleased Bob Dylan song is enjoyable.

Excellent movie but meant for East Coast markets that appreciate New York settings and character development. If you are looking for outrageous scenes like in Hustle and Wall Street, see somehing else. I thought it was one of the best of the year.

absolutely hated it, shouldn't have been connected to Dave Van Ronk or any of the folk singers of that era, hopefully some other director will pick up on the attention its gotten and film something that actually relates to the era. No story, no joy, a real bummer.

The most satisfyingly diabolical cinematic structure that the Coens have ever contrived, and that's just one reason that I suspect it may be their best movie yet. Full Review

What Inside Llewyn Davis is all about: the passion, and the pain, of being an artist. Full Review

As played by an eloquently beleaguered Oscar Isaac, Llewyn Davis is arguably the most vivid and complex character the Coens have dreamed up since Marge Gunderson. Full Review

As played by Oscar Isaac, he's snidely funny, world-weary and deeply sad. Though his story is enigmatic, the film itself is brilliantly acted, gorgeously shot and altogether captivating. Full Review

The Coens have given us a melancholic, sometimes cruel, often hilarious counterfactual version of music history. It's a what-if imagining of a cultural also-ran that maybe tells us more about the truth than the facts themselves ever could. Full Review
