Christian Gale’s review published on Letterboxd:
"In the case of Inside Llewyn Davis, this consistent pull toward bad luck gives the film a rare sort of melancholy, one that avoids sentimentality and pity, as well as outright cynicism, to find a strange, unmistakable truth about the emotional bruises and physical suffering of life as a human or, even worse, an artist."
-this quote from Chris Cabin's article for Collider about the criterion release of Inside Llewyn Davis articulates my feelings about this movie far better than I have been able to.
This a beautifully understated movie, and one that captures so much about the human experience. A masterpiece and one of the Coen's best.
