Inside Llewyn Davis – NOT!


I finally caught the Coen Brothers’ movie Inside Llewyn Davis which is about a wanna be folk singer.  As a rule,  I tend to like anything that the Coen boys do such as Fargo and No Country For Old Men.  However, Llewyn Davis did not make the cut.  Usually, I can do boring and slow movies, but Llewyn literally starts nowhere, goes nowhere and ends up, guess – nowhere.  

And on top of a non-existent and very boring plot line, the movie featured Llewyn as a lost-ball-in-tall-grass, screw up kind of guy who tended to get on my nerves.  They say that what you get annoyed about in others is also what you don’t like about yourself.  If that’s true then I am a whole lot more screwed up than I thought I was because poor old Llewyn really was a clueless mess.  

There were two redeeming things about the movie however:  John Goodman’s appearance as a pseudo Doc Pomus, and Llewyn/Oscar Issac’s performance of the song Fare Thee Well.  Turns out there are several versions of this song  (click here.)
