Inside Llewyn Davis
Emotionally chilly, darkly humorous, and formally precise. In other words -- it's a Coen brothers movie! Oscar Isaac is a revelation as the titular character, yet he and everyone else around him are upstaged by Ulysses the orange cat! The muted, snowy cinematography sets the perfect tone, and as usual, the pessimistic world view of the Coens brings about both laughs and questions. As with all of their work, repeated viewings will likely reap major benefits.
