So, the trailer is finally here for Inside Llewyn Davis and I couldn’t be more stoked for this. The Coen Brothers are a directing duo I have grown to appreciate more than love, but when they hit the right strokes the do so in such a big way. I’m less impressed with their more recent fare (I love their 80’s and 90’s work to no end) but this looks like a great amalgam of both worlds. It holds that deadpan grit that they bring to their more recent fare, but there is a spirit here that calls to mind their more relaxed and effortless efforts from yesteryear. This looks outstanding, and I have a feeling it could be a BIG player with Oscar this coming year. Supposedly it is getting a December release date, which will bode well with Oscar. Early word is that Oscar Isaac is killer in the lead, and this trailer highlight Mulligan (God’s gift to acting) in a way that makes me hopeful for her Oscar chances (“…and also because you’re an ASSHOLE!”). I’m intrigued. I can’t wait to see this.
