Votes: 119,705 | Gross: $13.24M

“Inside Llewyn Davis” comes like a breath of fresh air at Cannes, an accomplished, breathtaking work, a portrait of a specific time and place before everything changed. Like Dylan himself, the Coens keep evolving, never settling on one style for very long.

The Coens have made what is likely to be one of the best films of the year, and certainly among their own best work. They’ve stepped a bit out of their comfort zone in some respects, especially with the absence of their usual cinematographer, Roger Deakins. The film has a different look than we're accustomed to seeing from the Coens, because they're working with Bruno Delbonnel for the first time.
