No central character.
No defined purpose for side characters.
No three acts.
No internal references.
No political polemical voice.
One of the best films ever made.
Glossing over the Coen's filmography confirms my immediate sentiment after finishing Inside Llewyn Davis. I have never been moved by one of their films. That is not what they do. They craft tales that shy the beaten path, fill them with semi-human characters and embrace the style they are working in wholeheartedly.
Inside Llewyn Davis has all the hallmarks of a Coen film. With one trump up its sleeve causing me to allow this film to grip me, shake me…
Blazingly original, darkly disturbing, downright shocking, extremely grim, relentlessly brutal, insanely powerful & emotionally devastating, David Fincher's breakthrough feature is an intensely haunting masterpiece which today is widely & rightly counted amongst the greatest thrillers ever made, and is also notable for marking the commencement of an impressive career that continues to get stronger with every new Fincher film.

Keanu Reeves as John Wick, a grieving widower who finds comfort in a sweet puppy dog named Daisy. The comfort is short lived when a gang of thugs makes the worst mistake of their lives. The mistake?

Fifty-seven years. That is how long she had been in stasis. Her crew, her friends killed by that...that thing. The Nostromo detonated, the stowaway alien blasted into hyperspace. And then hypersleep. For fifty-seven long years, Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and her tabby cat, Jonesy, had been floating through space in suspended animation. They might have floated forever had a salvage crew not stumbled across them. Carter Burke (Paul Reiser) says…
Highly underrated film by John Carpenter just oozing with politically subversive biting satire that is even more relevant today then it was back in the 80's!
Roddy Piper's fight with Keith David's was quite a delicious little spectacle!
The film and score were so hip it had a swagger!
Last Word: I'm giving you a choice.. either put on "They Live" or start eatin' that trash can! ;-)
