The Coen Brothers' next film. Looks like a complete 180 turn in style for them. I like the looks of it, though.

TRAILER:

No Deakins on this one (he was away shooting Skyfall at the time). I didn't even recognize Carrey Mulligan in the trailer--that lady is a real chameleon.

I wouldn't say complete. No Country and True Grit were both rather conventional story wise and "small"/normal in terms of style. And this is also a period piece. But yeah, there's no clear Coen stamp on the trailer.

It has the potential to be their most boring film ever... Could be cool too. I like the fact that although we're always expecting something very cohenesque from them, they're always trying something different. While cohenesque anyway.

Most early Cannes reviews seem to be saying that it's basically perfect.

It has  December US release date.

Saw it, really liked it. Think A Serious Man with better cinematoggraphy, less comedy and less answers.

Here is an interview of the DP who speaks about his job on Inside Llewyn Davis, how it is to work with the Coen and also gives some interesting details about how the production went:

Another one worth reading (I'm looking at you DJ): an article about the film's soundtrack and T Bone Burnett, soundtrack producer.

http://variety.com/2013/music/features/inside-llewyn-davis-t-boneburnett-coen-bros-oscar-isaac-1200586851/

Also, here is a shot from one of the film's finest sequences that greatly mixes mystery, lyricism and noir:



This sequence has a few incredible crane shots, but they're not available online (yet).

Thanks. I'd certainly like to see this film. Unhappily, they're making us wait until the Friday before Christmas for it.

One cannot say too much about Oscar Isaac in this. In an interview included with the published screenplay, T-Bone Burnett gives us his perspective:
Quote
“I cannot think of a precedent in the history of civilization for this performance Oscar Isaac gives in this film. . . . I don’t think any actor has learned to play and sing a repertoire this thoroughly and compellingly and be able to film it all live without a click track, without the aid of tuning, without the aid of technology—just a complete analog performance of this character whose music Oscar had never heard a year before he did the film. Unbelievable. Oscar absorbed the guitar playing of Dave Van Ronk and the era—a technique known as Travis Picking—as if he was born to it. He learned all the songs and he learned to sing ‘em so naturally.

“The thing is, when we were on the set—in [movies] you always have some kind of thump track or click track or something that sets the tempo so you can cut between takes. But in this case, you know, the Coens decided early on that they just wanted to shoot and record the music live.  No playback. . . .

“I was just sitting on the side—you know, just off camera with this stop watch, old school, timing measures to see if Oscar was speeding up or slowing down. If we had a take or not that we could use.  And Oscar never—he must have worked with a metronome or I don’t know what. He’s just got it in his soul. But he never varied once, not one song, on all those takes. He never, never varied. We were able to cut between every take.”
(161, 162)
