Inside Llewyn Davis was a darkly funny movie, dark enough that you aren’t entirely sure you’re supposed to be laughing, but you think you are because Justin Timberlake is being kind of over-the-top. My mood during watching is summed up pretty well by this screen shot:
I’m not sure if I’m Llewyn or the cat, probably both. Or maybe that girl in the back, I don’t know. Strong points for characters and funny bits and great music. Points off for a certain scene with the cat and overall weirdness and not really understanding why no one likes this guy’s music.
(Since this review contains very little useful information, here’s a very brief synopsis: Llewyn is a struggling musician that seems pretty amazing, honestly, but he’s a total jerk and is depressed pretty much all the time, and sabotages all his relationships, and here’s a few days in his life. Enjoy.)
