justinC’s review published on Letterboxd:
The Coens have given us a truly great story of one musicians struggle to not make it big time. Instead to merely survive. Oscar Isaac as Llewyn Davis is nothing short of spectacular. The use of live music added so much to this film. Little roles played by Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake were solid, but John Goodman in his tiny role was outstanding as he continues to show up with flare in every part he plays. The Coen bros did it again with another film to add to their ever growing collection of masterpieces.
