We watched this from Redbox on March 30.
Wow, not sure what to say about this one. I really expected I would enjoy this movie, as did Lay. Unfortunately, I didn’t like it at all. Lay would rate a little higher, but we were both disappointed.
The reason I saw this film is that it’s a Coen Brothers film–and I nearly always love their films–whether they are comedies or dramas. However, “Inside Llewyn Davis” was, for me, a completely boring film with very little to recommend it. If I hadn’t known it was a Coen film, I never would have guessed it aside from having John Goodman in an odd little role and a reference to Ulysses. It has received many good reviews, so if you’re a fan of the Coen brothers, or like their style, by all means, see it.
