In­side Llewyn Davis

The Guardian - The Guide - - Sound & Vision -

1am, Chan­nel 4

Pre-Dy­lan Green­wich Vil­lage is recre­ated in all its tatty glory in the Coen broth­ers’ beau­ti­ful, bit­ter­sweet drama. Os­car Isaac is down­beat folk singer Llewyn Davis, once half of a well-re­garded duo, but now on the slide. The Coens move ef­fort­lessly from funny to melan­choly in a pitch-per­fect study of hope and fail­ure.
