Inside Llewyn Davis ★★★★★

Wow. So far, I've only seen two other films by the Coen Brothers, O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Miller's Crossing and both are incredibly unique, with there being nothing else like them in the genres that they're classified under. Inside Llewyn Davis is again, another excellent film that we can add to that list, as it emerges as the best film that I've seen from 2013, beating others like Gravity, Wolf of Wall Street, Dallas Buyers Club & Captain Phillips, which fill out the rest of my Top 5.

Set against the backdrop of the 1960s in Greenwich Village, Llewyn Davis is a struggling but gifted folk musician who is on the verge of quitting after his singing partner commits suicide. The film itself has a successful display of black humour like most of the Coen Brothers films, and I couldn't help but laugh multiple times throughout the movie. It's got just about everything you could want from a film, and with some excellent acting from Oscar Isaac along with a brilliant script, Inside Llweyn Davis might just have become one of my favourite films, with the Coen Brothers knocking it out of the park once again.
