The Music of “Inside Llewyn Davis”

posted by Nell Minow

One of my favorite movies of the year is the Coen Brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis,” the story of one week in the life of a folk singer in 1961.  Oscar Isaac gives a performance of astonishing depth of emotion and humanity in the title role, and I have been playing the soundtrack non-stop.  Showtime will broadcast a tribute concert taped on September 29, with performance by legends and rising stars from both folk and contemporary music— including Joan Baez, Patti Smith, Jack White, Marcus Mumford, the Avett Brothers, Rhiannon Giddens, Punch Brothers, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Willie Watson, The Milk Carton Kids, Colin Meloy, Lake Street Dive and Isaac himself.  It premieres December 13 at 10 Eastern.

Trailer: Chef
Jon Favreau follows his big-budget special effects movies ("Iron Man," "Cowboys and Aliens") with a return to his small, indie roots ("Swingers") as director/writer/star of the scrumptious-looking "Chef."  (WARNING: Some strong language) [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tP6SE65F-h4[/yout
