There are certain directors that can pretty much do what they want. Even their worst movie are head and shoulders above most of the garbage that is tossed at us (and Redbox) week after week. The Coen Brothers are no doubt in that category and any new film by them instantly goes on my list of "Must Sees."

The New York Times has a couple of new pictures from their new film, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, starring Oscar Issac, Justin Timberlake, and Carey Mulligan. Issac plays the titular character that's loosely based from the memoirs of folk singer Dare Van Ronk and follows a struggling musician traversing the folk scene in 1960's New York City. The film isn't a full on musical, but will have full length songs, so think O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? In fact, T-Bone Burnett (who worked on the the music for O BROTHER) is back to produce the soundtrack for INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS.

New York Times is also reporting that while the film probably could have been finished in time for award's season this year, the brothers decided not to rush it. Instead, there's a chance it may have its first public viewing at the Cannes Film Festival in May. We could have some more news on how it looks and sounds shortly though because there's apparently going to be a private pre-Grammy viewing in Los Angeles. 

It shouldn't take long after it screens for it to get sold, followed by a release date. If you haven't already, take a look at the trailer as well.

Extra Tidbit: Is INTOLERABLE CRUELTY a guilty pleasure for anyone else? It's probably the weakest Coen Brothers' movie, but I enjoy how it plays like an old school Hepburn/Tracy comedy.

I like 'Intolerable Cruelty' quite a bit. I think their worst film (by large and far) is 'The Lady killers'; what an sad sack of shit that was.

I, too, loved Intolerable Cruelty. It's not as Coen-esk as usual but definitely still very good and funny in my eyes. In fact, the only one of their films that I've haven't rated a 10, 9 or 8 is Ladykillers which after 2 viewings has a 7, but seeing as how all Coen films grow on me more and more the upon repeated viewings that might change too.

Tidbit

Intolerable Cruelty wasn't a terrible film. But it was a pretty bad Coen movie. A few touches like Wheezy Pete mistaking his gun for his inhaler felt like real Coen flourishes, but mainly, it felt like there was way too many characters I just didn't care about. And I wanted to see more Geoffrey Rush. That guy was just too crazy to be relegated to just a cameo.

Looks like another intriguing Coen entry

This one was kinda under the radar but looks impressive, no big surprise there though, its the Coens!
TIDBIT: Yes, "Intolerable Cruelty" is very enjoyable for me as well because it works like an old school screwball comedy and Clooney is great in 'Cary Grant' mode. I disagree though "The Ladykillers" is their weakest film, the characters are all incredibly irritating and the comedy falls flat; an odd misstep in an almost flawless filmography.

Re extra tidbit: I loved Intolerable Cruelty. I think many dislike it because it was the Coen brothers directing from somewhere else's script and so they seemed a little out of their comfort zone, but I still think it's one of my favourite romantic comedies.
