When I used the restroom in the middle of the movie, I considered staying in there and playing Works with Friends, just to kill the time. Dark, boring, no plot, what a waste of time. Why did anyone bother making a movie like this? My mom wanted to see it so I just went with her w/o looking at these reviews first, like I normally do, wish I had!

Inside Llewyn Davis is not upbeat or a Christmas blockbuster. It is sad, depressing but familiar to those in the music industry. Touches of old New York - meaning NY in the 50s - and memories of the Gaslight, Cafe Reggio and the village at that time.
Loved the music and Oscar Isaac is not only good-looking but an incredible actor. And I will say, all performances were great although the characters were not always likeable.
If you love music, go!

Somewhere along the line I've misplaced my effeteness. Kind of reminds me of "Who is Harry Kellerman, and...." The critics loved that one, too. "If the Coen Bros. make a movie, it must good or else we're just missing something, and we critics dare not show our un-hipness!" Somebody got took. This movie is the epitome of boring, self indulgent '60's crap.

I usually ignore these requests but this movie was the worst I have seen in a long time. It was SOOOO bad that I googled reviews after seeing it just to be sure I had read correctly. I think the critics would praise the Coen Brothers for filming someone cutting grass which, in my opinion, would have been more interesting. Come on guys.....let's be real.
Okay....liked one or two of the songs but otherwise RUN away from this one.

THE MUSIC AND ACTING WERE FANTASTIC. THE MOVIE DID A GREAT JOB WITH SHOWING A SLICE OF LIFE OF A STRUGGLING FOLK SINGER. REAL LIFE ... SOMEWHAT DEPRESSING.
