Year: 2013
Genre: Drama and Music
Conclusion: 3/5
The thing that I enjoyed the most in this film was the music. I have just gone out and got the soundtrack to this. I think it is a film that to fully appreciate it takes more than one viewing. Oscar Isaac is fantastic in this film and carries it all the way through. He is such a talented actor and to sing the songs that he sang was quite incredible. He is such a diverse actor. I am also a fan of Ethan and Joel Coen’s work. The cinematography was brilliant. Watch the cat very closely, does the cat have any sort of meaning in this film? Oscar Isaac actually dislikes cats and once got an infection from a cat bite. This is the second film where Carey Mulligan and Oscar Isaac act opposite each other. The first being Drive (2011). Apparently Michael Fassbender auditioned for the role of Llewyn Davis. At the Cannes Film Festival in 2013 Ethan and Joel Coen both won the Grand Prize of the Jury Award.
