Carl’s most liked review

Inside Llewyn Davis

★★★★½

I don't understand how the Coens manage to make stories that appear cynically dark but infusing them with a warmth and humor. This story of a singer-songwriter with a romanticized self-image is a hilarious tribute to struggling artists and the way they can sabotage themselves. Llewyn Davis writes nonsensical lyrics…

30 movies from 30 different countries in the month of May, as challenged by Lise.

I successfully completed last year's challenge, but with an average rating below 3 after mostly avoiding movies that were already on my radar. This time around I'll make it easier for myself and try to check off some of my watchlist.
