INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. 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. littered with catchy tunes composed by T-Bone Burnett, LLEWYN DAVIS is the musical opposite of their bluegrass-heavy o BROTHER WHERE ART THOU? that seems to take place in an alternate reality; LLEWYN DAVIS is closer to a familiar world. Llewyn’s acoustic compositions are mainly solemn works, and they reflect the character’s solitary existence. (…) An ode to art for art’s sake, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS is the most innocent movie of the coens’ career, which in their case is a downright radical achievement. (Eric Kohn)
