Inside Llewyn Davis by jlyonsroberts
Very disappointing. Didn't get it. Nothing appealing, or enlightening, about a man who cannot get out of his own way and keeps making the same mistakes over and over again.
No Plot, No Story by dutypaid
I found this to be a mostly depressing and disappointing film especially from the Coen brothers. This is a dark almost joyless film that has lots and lots of unknown folk music in long form throughout the movie.
I would not waste any money! So disappointing!
Inside Llewyn Davis by djchrismillerbrookly
Very very slow, not very funny, i'd skip it. Loved Fargo & Oh Brother. That's not what your getting in this flick i'm sorry to say. You'll see what i mean after you see this and become disappointed.
no narrative arch by amongstflowers
The characters are interesting but totally without any narrative meaning...altogether too long. Could have been an hr and 20 minute series of vignettes..I don't recommend it.
Dull and depressing by scott395
There is absolutely nothing interesting in this movie. No story at all. Just random goings on in the life of a miserable loser. It's painful to watch, and difficult to understand.
Llewyn Davis is the Answer, my friend. by gordonison
The best Cohen Brothers movie since "O Brother
", the Siblings from Minnesota once again manage to catapult us back through time to the strange days just before Dylan gave us all a new perspective. To an era between the wholesomeness of the burgeoning Folk Scene and the Beatniks who were thriving on junk and speed. With a knock-out performance by Oscar Isaac who not only embodies the life a young struggling artist, but also managed to sing and play convincingly. With a star packed supporting cast including the stalwart John Goodman, "Inside Llewyn Davis" waxes nostalgic and delivers a crispy, clear moment in time, forever preserved by the Cohen Brothers seemingly limitless imaginations.
Let Me Out by Digital Insider
Although the acting and cinematography were excellent, the film lacked a compelling plot and a sympathetic protagonist. I napped twice. The movie simply wasn't worth the $32 that my wife and I paid for tickets. Sandy Kenyon was right on this one - the other reviewers were off.
sub mediocre in every way by menster1
This was a case of critics darlings the Coen bros taking a big dump of a movie, and everyone buys into it because it's The Big Lebowski, Fargo..etc.. guys..
The music was a boring , cliched,mediocre facsimile of 60's folk music. The movie suggests that
the protagonist's music is authentic and earthy and invites the viewer to look down on the more commercial folk that was around at the time. Too bad the songs and performance don't hold up ..the entire premise of the movie becomes offensive.
T bone Burnett the resident "expert" on Americana ..another critic
darling who now phones it in ,should be ashamed ..The characters and
acting were in general overdone, and unsympathetic to degree that
the story felt pointless and contrived. And the final "guest performer" (I won't
spoil it)..please ! ! ! I want my 14.50 back
