Inside Llewyn Davis ★★★★

Inside Llewyn Davis is another excellent film directed by the Coen Brothers and Oscar Isaacs really shows his immense musical and dramatic talent on screen. The Coens create an endless succession of unfortunate events that affect the life of Llewyn, making you truly feel all the obstacles, frustrations and resentments he has throughout the story. It’s tough not to get emotionally involved by his passionate musical compositions and by his fearless attitude towards the disapproval and indifference that always surround him. Before we make quick judgments regarding Llewyn’s radical actions at times, it’s important to observe he comes from a troubled past and that he is still not over the death of his friend and former musical partner. Inside Llewyn Davis deserves much more recognition in my opinion, being one of the best films I have watched from 2013.
