Inside Llewyn Davis (matinee)

Inside Llewyn Davis follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles-some of them of his own making.

Matinee cost is $8.00. The Carolina Theatre accepts cash, debit and credit cards.

    Just some belated thoughts on this movie which has taken me a long time to see. Until tonight (the coldest night of the week). Glad I saw it and although I can't quite simplify what I think whether I "like" it or not, I must say that like Shawna says there are layers to the movie that are sometimes not apparent during the first viewing. But I thought the film's linear narrative is very curiously structured by the Coen siblings -- especially the middle part when LD was traveling in the car to Chicago with the characters played by John Goodman and Garrett Hedlund. It was like some form of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas minus the seconals and other drugs. It is like having characters inspired by Hunter Thompson living in the Coen landscape--love those scenes the most. Also the ending's resolution was unconventionally mounted with LD looking at the mysterious man in the alley. Then there are also other random but fun elements, like the cat, Robin Bartlett's character and LD singing alone.

      The roadtrip scene definitely had a beatnik feel to it, especially, since Hedlund was recently cast as Dean Moriarty in the film adaptation of On the Road.

    Very puzzling movie... anyone figure out the symbolism of the cat, other than it having a more appealing personality than the main character?

    Great time meeting new folks at the bar afterwards as well.

    This is what I have always loved about this group - earnest and intelligent discourse! For myself, the film needed to settle a bit, but I guess I had a very different take on the "message" of the film. Truly enjoyed the brilliant humor interlaced throughout though I really saw it as a sad, gritty, though very realistic portrayal of a "true" artist and what drives him to keep moving, even if that movement is not always forward. The artistry is their "calling", if you will, and having lived amongst artists my whole life, this passion is rarely realistic, pragmatic, etc. yet it can be more powerful than what drives many of us throughout our lives. Although I am a strong believer in free will and that we are all responsible for the choices we make in life, I often wonder if it this always holds true for the artist. For all the suffering and crap they endure, in some ways, I envy them actually.. oh, and the cat, just like Llewyn, will to survive, yeah 9 lives..

    Strange movie. A close up of a very screwed up guy. I kept waiting for something to happen! It didn't. BTW NY Times chief film critic AOScott loves it, made his no. 1 of his top 10 films of the year!

    Enjoyed this firm and loved the music. I discovered the film was inspired by the early professional career of Dave Van Ronk who I had seen play a number of times while I lived in Manhattan. Van Ronk "came from the land of giants," Bob Dylan wrote in "Chronicles," and "towered over the street like a mountain but would never break into the big time. It just wasn't where he pictured himself." BTW, a cat also appears on Dave Van Ronk's album " Inside Dave Van Ronk".

    It seemed the story line didn't come full circle.

    There's something wonderful about Coen Brothers films. I like how this one takes place in the doom and gloom winter and the use of mythology references: Ulysses the cat and The Gate of Horn. I also like how there's a fine line between Llewyn being an asshole and a likeable guy. I liked Oscar Isaac's performance in this film. I would see it again, as with most Coen Bros films. There's always something to go back to or read about later. I also can't stop thinking how the name LLewyn is so similar to Llewelyn (Moss) from No Country.

    I think the cat was meant to soften our attitude toward LLewyn. We sympathize when the cat escapes the apartment. And we see a slightly softer side of him as he chases after it and totes it around NYC.

    Enjoyed the film a lot. Related to the story as it was about the folk era of the 60s when I was in college. Fun to get together after the film

    Sorry can't make it. Getting caught up after being stranded up North in the polar vortex for 5 days! So happy to be home.

    Another one I wanted to see and I am going to miss. :-( This time I've been sick and don't want to spread my germs.

    Although probably not necessary, tickets are available in advance online for $9.25: http://www.carolinatheatre.org/films/inside-llewyn-davis. I got mine in advance...just in case.

    Interesting concept coming from the Coen Brothers,whose last picture,the 1969 remake of "True Grit" was a runaway boxoffice hit of 2010. This one is more toward the independent crowd with a slew of guest stars including Justin Timberlake,in a supporting role.
