Now is the perfect time to catch some great flicks on the big screen. Awards contenders like The Wolf of Wall Street just hit theaters, and Joel and Ethan Coen's folk music sensation Inside Llewyn Davis is hitting more theaters as well. And while the film is chock full of great acting and the quality of cinema we've come to expect from the Coen Brothers, the biggest triumph is the music, which is a star of the film by itself. Produced by T-Bone Burnett, the soundtrack is a glorious dive into folk music, and now we have a SoundWorks Collection featurette diving into the sound and music in the film, and how it came to life.
Here's the SoundWorks Collection featurette for Joel & Ethan Coen's Inside Llewyn Davis from Vimeo:
Joel and Ethan Coen are writing and directing Inside Llewyn Davis, which was originally inspired by real-life musician Dave Van Ronk. The story chronicles a struggling musician's time as a larger-than-life presence in the 60's folk music scene in Greenwich Village, known for the famous folk-music haunts and mentoring musicians such as Bob Dylan. Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, Adam Driver and more star in the film which also brings back O Brother Where Art Thou music producer T-Bone Burnett working with Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons. CBS Films released the film in limited theaters on December 6th, but it's expanding in more theaters now.

I didn't like this film by the brothers. I loved No Country, Raising Arizona, thought their True Grit much better than the silly Wayne version. This film was pretty boring and simplistic and even trite. I didn't see the point to it and the music was just so-so. The brother's concert film on Showtime is much, much better with many great musicians and bands with Lake Street Dive standing out and Mumford's solo of a very old Dylan song. The film? Nah...
