"Inside Llewyn Davis" a New York Times Critics' Pick; Oscar Isaac Talks with NPR's "All Things Considered" About Title Role
Inside Llewyn Davis, the new Coen brothers film set in the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961, is a New York Times Critics' Pick. The Times' A.O. Scott says Oscar Isaac "plays both Llewyn and the guitar with offhand virtuosity." The Wall Street Journal lauds “Isaac's phenomenal performance.” The actor discussed the role and the music on NPR's All Things Considered and on WNYC's Soundcheck, which you can listen to here, and in a Hollywood Reporter piece you can watch here. Time calls the soundtrack "a trove of sonic pleasure," and Rolling Stone calls it "pure pleasure."
