With Inside Llewyn Davis, the Coen Brothers give us a pure look at New York City and Greenwich Village before all the trannies moved in. What a time it was. Everything looked almost out of focus and you could play with your cat on the subway without fear of someone snatching it out of your hands and running off.
We still have five months before the film hits theaters but if the previews are any indication, John Goodman and his Lloyd Christmas haircut steal the show. “Folk singer with a cat. Is that part of your act? Every time you play a C major, you puke a hairball?” He’s kidding, of course, but that would be pretty awesome to see. Take notes, Ke$ha.
