Coen movies either are totally awesome or they suck. There is no in between. This belongs into the suck category. I had to stop this torture after an hour...
Inside Llewyn Davis was a decent film by the Coen brothers, with some nice musical performances by Oscar Isaac and a good performance by Carey Mulligan. Funny at times, smart at times, but ultimately too little happened for my tastes.
This was great. While the film holds a doom and gloom sort of mood throughout, it still finds room to be smart, funny and heartful. The amount of depht this film presents combined with it's musical appearances creates an enjoyable atmosphere that drags you along despite its slow pace.
It needed a better ending!
