I was just wondering what Joel and Ethan Coen were up to. It’s been awhile since True Grit. Their new one is called Inside Llewyn Davis, and it’s not a western, though it is a period piece, set in what looks like the early ’60s. John Goodman’s in it, sporting great facial hair, and F. Murray Abraham looks hip. There’s a cat and an angry lady and though it seems to be about a folk singer, we don’t get to hear any songs aside from one by Bob Dylan. I don’t know why, but this looks better to me than any other recent Coen Bros. movies. No word yet on when it opens.
