I'm a big fan of Christopher Guest mockumentaries (Spinal Tap, Best in Show etc) and their fabulous ensemble casts. First rate satires one and all. I'm also, but much more guardedly, a fan of the Coen Brothers' oeuvre. Last night these two worlds collided when I watched Inside Llewyn Davis. It was A Mighty Wind done noir, as only the Coen brothers could manage. It has great music, their trademark cinematography, and a much lighter hand on the violence. (I couldn't watch No Country for Old Men.) But if you're looking for a good weekend flick, then Inside Llewyn Davis gets a tick from me. The cat alone gives a command performance. I'd nominate it for an Oscar.
