"Inside Llewyn Davis" (2013 release; 105 min.) brings the (fictional) story of a folk singer named Llewyn Davis as he tries to build fame in 1961 New York. As the movie opens, we see Davis perform at the famous Gaslight Café in what appears to be just another routine performance. Soon thereafter, we learn that Davis has no money and literally couch-hops from one night to the next between friends. We get to know Jean and Jim, and later learn that Jean is pregnant and she is not certain who the father is although she thinks it's Llewyn, not Jim. Out of money, Davis bitterly complains to his agent that he didn't get an advance on his recently released solo record (called "Inside Llewyn Davis") and surely he should get some royalties? Now he is desperate and he decides to go to Chicago to meet with the legendary Bud Grossman, an influential guy in the music business. To tell you more about the film 'plot' would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.
Several comments: first and foremost, there has been quite a bit of speculation in the press and elsewhere whether this movie is intended as a parody or send-up by the Coen brothers of the early 1960s folk scene. I can tell you that this is not the case at all, and that this is actually a straight take on that era. Second, the Coen brothers have admitted in interviews that 'there is no plot in this movie, reason why we threw in the cat'. Yes, the cat owned by the Gorfeins (friends of Davis) plays a role but to the Coens' point: this movie provides a snap-shot of that era, and does not focus on plot twists or even plot resolution. It didn't bother me one bit, as I was fascinated with the impressions of that era as painted by the Coens. Third, this movie oozes great performances, starting with Oscar Isaac in the title role, but check out Carey Mulligan as Jean, in her best role since "An Education" and Justin Timberlake as her husband Jim. But make sure to watch for F. Murray Abraham in the small role of Bud Grossman. After Davis does an on-the-spot audition for Grossman, Grossman comments dryly and devastatingly to Davis "I don't see a lot of money here", wow! Towards the end of the movie, Davis comments to the Gaslight Café audience "it's never new and it never gets old, it's a folk song", and that about sums it up.
I saw this film during a recent family visit in Belgium, and the theatre where I saw this at was reasonably well attended, which surprised me a little bit, given the heavy American tone and focus of this. I guess some people in Belgium do care about the New York folk scene from the early 60s after all. If you are a fan of that era, this movie is a must-see, but even if you are not, I would recommend it. I know I enjoyed this from start to finish. "Inside Llewyn Davis" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
