Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)

The latest Cohen brothers is character study about a struggling folk musician in 1961. Set in the winter in the Big Apple we follow a folkie trying to climb off the hamster-wheel of couch surfing and low paydays. Beautifully shot this movie is a tone poem about a guy trying to find himself and get ahead while seeming to upset everyone around him. This movie is probably not for everyone but I loved the road trip to Chicago with the jazz musician portrayed by John Goodman and the goofy astronaut song he Davis performed with JT.    B+
