Inside Llewyn Davis ★★★★★

Inside Llewyn Davis is a wonderful film about Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) who's a lost soul yearning for success in Greenwich Village as a folk singer, but always ends up arriving in the right place at the wrong time. The Coen's bring the 60's folk scene to life with a blistering soundtrack of great music that will leave an indelible impression on you.
The film opens on Davis being attacked outside a club by an unknown assailant and throughout the film we discover why he ends up in this situation and how he is his own worst enemy, he's an unsympathetic man, but through his isolation and desperation in a world where he doesn't quite fit in, it makes us understand and empathise with Llewyn Davis and ultimately you want him to succeed.
The Coen Bros have created another masterpiece that like a fine wine will mature over time, on a first watch you will enjoy it, but on a second you will love it.
