INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS @Hillcrest

Synopsis:
Inside Llewyn Davis follows a week in the life of talented but feckless folk singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he struggles to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles—some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn's misadventures take him from the coffeehouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club—on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul—and back again. Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyn's married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis transports you to another time and place. An epic on an intimate scale, it is Joel and Ethan Coen's (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) fourth collaboration with multiple Grammy- and Academy Award-winning music producer T Bone Burnett. With John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, Adam Driver and F. Murray Abraham.

    LA Times today: It's the music that moves 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

    Sorry I missed the discussion afterwards. I actually enjoyed the folk music in the movie. Some of the other singers (Al Cody=Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Troy Nelson=Tom Paxton) were nice characters. I found a slate article that mentions who the characters were inspired by from real-life. http://www.slate.com/blogs/brow...­

    After a bit more reflection, I'm wondering if it's better to measure a film based upon one's own tastes, or rather against the goals of the director(s)? In other words, expectations. In this film, the dark cloud hanging over the title character is the virtually unspoken suicide of his friend and musical partner. So he's left to grieve without any apparent support system, and the results are what we see in his train wreck of a life.

    With the brief exception perhaps of Mrs. "Granny Panties', there are zero sympathetic characters in the film. What are we as film-goers supposed to do with that?

    Enjoyed the conversation at the Greek Diner after the movie. It will not be at the top of my list of great Coen films but I stilled enjoyed it overall. Coen Brothers have a tremendous knack to find ways to strike a nerve or emotion you don't expect plus they seem to take pleasure in throwing in obvious analogies without making them obvious to us. Llewyn Davis character is not very likable but that probably was their point when you reflect on this character.

    Upon reflection this movie has much more there there than when I first left the theater. Most of the music was regrettable, but the character - and the short period of travails he endures (something like ten days in toto are chronicled), and which he frequently impacts negatively due only to his own surliness - does grow on the viewer. Great time at the Greek diner too!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
