Inside Llewyn Davis (Review)

Inside Llewyn Davis is directed by The Coen Brothers and it stars Oscar Isaac as a struggling singer who is trying to go solo in the early 1960s, the film takes place in one week during the life of the singer who is despite being fiction is inspired by real life singer named Dave Van Ronk.

As a signture Coen Brothers film it is a black comedy jumping rope between real struggle of a starving artist to his journey with a cat and the significance of that cat in his path, one of the main point of attaction throught out the movie is that ginger cat which plays a role in his life he comes back to him and leaves and comes back again and his attitude toward the cat shows his groth as a character and as a human being. Without a doubt The Coens are one of the top working filmmakers right now and to some critica Inside Llewyn Davis is their best work yet topping the likes of Fargo, No Country for Old Men and True Grit while that is a bold claim it is not entirely without merit, the film succeeds in making you care and sympathies with its main character while growing him to a point of breaking, this film is something to be expirenced.

Perhaps one of the most striking aspects of the film that will draw the audience in is Bruno Delbonel’s magnificent cinematography, which he was nominated for an oscar for, rightfully so the movie is a visual treat. 

The film has some very good performances and perhaps Oscar Isaac is the one to shine here he drives the film forward with his real and beautiful portryal of the character, Carey Mulligen and John Goodman also did a fine job.

Verdict : the Coen brothers are one of the best in show business and their 2013 film is nothing short of a masterpiece.
