Blunt Reviews Presents: Inside Llewyn Davis (2014)


It may have been overlooked by the Academy and passed many people by, but I rather liked it. A delicate and slower paced film from The Coen Brothers who apply their humourous writing and unique directing style appropriately to the sixties folk music scene. The main character isn’t particularly likable but Oscar Isaac does a terrific job of playing him, and his singing voice is also very impressive. I had to watch this a couple of times before I fully enjoyed it and it isn’t one of the Coens’ best, but it is still an enjoyable and unique experience.
