Inside Llewyn Davis ★★★★★

a hell of a lot of truth in this. a hell of a lot of truth. broad cuts at the divide between living & simply being alive, but perhaps more than anything else a gently devastating look at how people change (or how they don't). need to let this one kick around (and will surely revisit a ridiculous number of times over the years) but already comfortable saying that it's up there with the the Coen brothers' very best.
