Trivia

The Coens' usual choice for cinematographer, Roger Deakins, was unavailable as he was busy shooting Skyfall (2012). Meanwhile, Bruno Delbonnel, who is French, stepped in to take the position, and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Cinematography, his fourth nomination in 13 years. Deakins, who is British, had been nominated 11 times for Oscars, five of those films for the Coens. See more »

Goofs

Llewyn Davis uses two different capos. In the clubs it appears to be a Hamilton capo which was around in the 1960s (although possibly not as early as 1961) but in other scenes he is clearly using a Shubb capo which was not available until 1980. See more »

Quotes

Roland Turner: A solo act?
Llewyn Davis: No, I had a partner... he threw himself off the George Washington Bridge.
Roland Turner: George Washington Bridge? You throw yourself off the Brooklyn Bridge, traditionally. George Washington Bridge? Who does that?

The Gloomy Innocence Of The Coen Bros
21 March 2014 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

It's like a gust of wind that never stops. I was altered, disturbed and amused by the clarity of this poets. From Joel and Ethan to Bruno Delbonnel, Oscar Isaac, to T Bone Burnett and everyone who enters, even for an instant, this sublime, unique, startling P.O.V. Aware but never condescending to the audience. No explanation as to why this story deserved to be told. The answers are private, deeply personal, enlightening and, at times, chillingly transparent. The face of Oscar Isaac, my God! For me one of the most enthralling discoveries of 2013. At times it reminded me of an updated character in an Italian Neo-realistic film, others one of those images from one of Martin Donovan's sessions. I sat through Inside Llewyn Davis twice in a row. I can't wait to repeat the experience soon again.
