Default 'Inside Llewyn Davis' - High-Def Digest Review

Steven has reviewed 'Inside Llewyn Davis'. He says this is another masterpiece from the Coen Brothers, and one of his favorite films of 2013. The Blu-ray is highly recommended. Here's why...

Masterpiece might be a strong word. I did love the film though. Especially as I'm a fan of folk music, and modern americana.

Before I saw Her, this was my pick for best original screenplay.

Default You're a relative?

I checked the whole IN and everybody agrees that this movie is the worst Coen presentation for ever. You are a Cohen. You must be a relative to give 4 1/2 stars, when others give 2 out of 5.

What are you saying?

Anyone who has seen The Ladykillers would say otherwise.

I agree with Steven - Llewyn Davis is a masterpiece.

This film was a total snub in terms of Oscar nominations. The Coens, Oscar Isaac and just about everyone involved deserve some recognition. On my ballot, it found its way into a slew of categories. Should it have won all of those categories? No, but it shouldn't be missed.

The problems that the Coens have found themselves in is that they're repeatedly making these well-polished and finely tuned "masterpieces" so it's hard for one to out-do the others. Their movies are so precise and clean that there's little fault with any of them. I love watching them put out films that far difference from one another. It keeps them from getting into a rut (can you say Wes Anderson)?

So your significant other prefers to hear you say:

I masterpiece you, instead of I love you?!

I know this goes against popular opinion, but I can't express how painful I found this viewing experience. I had no sympathy for the character, and by the time the end came around, I couldn't even feel joy at his plight. I found the story to be self-indulgent and actively turned me against folk singers in general. The only character I liked was the cat.

Sorry! I know this is really negative, and i'm probably the wrong audience for this movie.

Just because I love a film, doesn't mean I would rate it a "masterpiece." For me, a masterpiece transcends my personal taste and would be something that I feel is something that needs to be seen. As much as I love Llewyn Davis, I would never recommend it to certain people. It's just that type of film. I would recommend No Country, O Brother, and Fargo to everyone. Those are the brother's real masterpieces. They transcend personal taste and function as both an entry point and high point for the careers of the Coen's.

Now, to fans of the brother's films...yes, I would recommend it.

It was just funny to me how you wrote about not using a "strong" word, and
the very next line used the word "love".

Picture a newly dating couple eating lunch together. The guy tells the girl that
he doesn't like using "strong" words to describe their relationship, but after
biting into his sandwich... he says: "This sandwich is awesome! I LOVE it!"

I don't think love is a strong word. Goes with my personality. I think it's a pretty base word, actually.
