Inside Llewyn Davis
The film outstays its welcome and is more than a little too knowing in its manipulation of standard audience expectations for the genre.
Brilliant, radical, provocative, it's a masterpiece that is at times barely watchable.
This beautifully acted and paced German variant of Cape Fear ... is tricked out with a number of Brechtian devices to catch audiences in a voyeuristic trance.
| Original Score: 3/5
The basic puzzle is why this sophisticated director chose this tired formula.
The emotions of the victims are clear and complex -- their conflicts dominate our experience of the narrative as powerfully as all the devices telling us to look elsewhere for the movie's themes.
| Original Score: 2/4
