Folk singer with a cat. You queer? I’m a big fan of the Coen brothers. I’ve got all their films on DVD or Blu-ray. I love the storytelling, the gorgeous cinematography, the memorable dialogue and the fine balance of humor and pathos.
Last night I watched Inside Llewyn Davis, it’s about a week in the life of a young singer, played by Oscar Isaac, as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. It’s hard to understand that Inside Llewyn Davis, probably the best film of 2013, has been overlooked in most Oscar nominations. The real star of this film is actually a ginger tom cat with the on-screen name Ulysses.
Mr. Bowie was offered the title role but declined, saying that some people and cats would not be able to look past him as a star to see the importance of the film.
