    Inside Llewyn Davis: Oscar Isaac & Justin Timberlake w

    Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, continued began the second week of its limited theatrical run in New York City and Los Angeles and will open in additional theaters across the United States this coming Friday. Having already been nominated for a number of awards, including three Golden Globes, and named the year's best film by the New York Times and others, Inside Llewyn Davis has now landed the top spot among the Top 10 Films of 2013 per Variety's chief international film critic Peter Debruge. "Inside Llewyn Davis, one of Joel and Ethan Coen's finest," writes Debruge, "was also the finest film this year."

    Film Comment also names Inside Llewyn Davis the Best Film of 2013, as does Paper magazine's Dennis Dermody, calling it a "funky, funny, touching recreation at the folk scene in Greenwich Village in the 1961." The Associated Press film writer Jake Coyle also includes Inside Llewyn Davis among the Top 10 Movies of the Year. "In surveying the year at the movies, the topography is rich," writes Coyle. "[A]mbitious films gathered in number as the year went on, and many began calling 2013 a historically excellent year for film, after all."

    Oscar Isaac, who plays the title role of Llewyn Davis, and T Bone Burnett, who, with Joel and Ethan Coen, produced the film's soundtrack, participated in a Reddit AMA earlier today. You can read what each had to say in answering fans' questions about the film, music, and more at reddit.com.

Both are now 34% off the standard retail price (about 20% off the everyday low prices listed on the site) as part of the current Nonesuch Store anniversary sale.

    The documentary Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of "Inside Llewyn Davis" premiered on SHOWTIME on Friday and is now available to watch online anytime for SHOWTIME subscribers at showtimeanytime.com. The film, which captured a one-night-only concert held at New York City’s Town Hall in September to celebrate the music of Inside Llewyn Davis, features performances from the Oscar Isaac, The Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Rhiannon Giddens, Colin Meloy, The Milk Carton Kids, Marcus Mumford, Punch Brothers, Dave Rawlings Machine, Patti Smith, Gillian Welch, Willie Watson, Jack White, and more.
