    I saw a trailer for this several months ago.
    It looks like it was shot really well but I'm just not sure how interesting the story really is.

    That folksy music just doesn't resonate with most people today.

    anyone see this then? just saw it, very minimalistic imo, just following a guy around

    think about an episode of treme where things just linger and nothing really happens

    interesting stuff for 90 mins

    Minimalism is what they were going for, and what they achieved. It was character driven and really didn't have a plot, essentially it's dialogue porn. Which I don't have a problem with, because I'm a little artsy fartsy. I'm just surprised that they got the go ahead to make this, and even more surprised that they not only made back the 11 million in production cost, but grossed over 32 million world wide.

    I was also really impressed with the cinematography, so I looked up who was behind it and his name is Bruno Delbonnel. I have to :salute:him, because he worked on Amelie, and I catch a chubby off of most of the shots from that film.

    I'm going to buy this film, but I wouldn't recommend it to most of the people I know.

    I liked it but it's not a movie I feel like revisiting. Like all Coen films it at least looks great, and it certainly has memorable characters and dialogues, but it doesn't have enough body to really leave a lasting impression.

    I didn't love this film. It looks amazing. And I thought the music was expertly done, but the dialogue wasn't intriguing, I don't feel as if any of the characters were likeable and Oscar and Carey had much better chemistry in Drive. Her performance seemed a bit forced to me.

    I like minimalism in my films, but I thought they did a much better job with it in A Serious Man.

    I only liked the film the first time I watched it........then someone suggested I rewatch the film and keep in mind that Llewyn Davis' partner had died just before the film picks up the story...and to watch the film as something of an exploration of grief.

    It changed everything. I love it.

    Damn, that was a perfect description. I finally watched it and that is a flawless way to look at this film.
