Trailer Of The Week - Week #51 - Inside Llewyn Davis

For those who might have been in any doubt, the latest Coen Brothers effort looks to be following the pattern of recent offerings from Ethan and Joel through and through. Relative unknown looking rather impressive in a lead role? That’ll be Oscar Isaac as the titular folk singer. Bigger names looking rather impressive whilst being cast against type? Step forward Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake. Coen mainstay making a welcome return? Good to see you, John Goodman. Stylistically this feels Coen through and through, with a distinct palette used throughout the trailer and Llewyn inexplicably carrying a cat throughout. It might be the Coens sticking with what they know, but what they know is making excellent and original cinema. So why change?
