Inside Llewyn Davis
The longest and dreariest 94 minutes I've spent on a movie this year.
| Original Score: 1/4
None of this is necessarily funny. That's the extent of the irony here.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The joke, I guess, is that there's nothing funny about "The Comedy."
| Original Score: 3/5
A mean-spirited piece of mumblecore that tries to provoke you, but only succeeds in boring you.
| Original Score: 0/4
A character study that tries to make the revolting compelling.
If you can discern any critical distance or interesting perspective here, or even a good reason to spend 90 minutes in such company, I'm afraid the joke is on you.
| Original Score: 1/5
The movie may critique its antihero, but it also offers just one more venue in which he's allowed to wallow - while we pay his way.
| Original Score: 2/5
The Comedy pretends to be a satire of entitlement, but it's made in a style so indulgent that the whole film feels entitled in the extreme.
| Original Score: C
[A] faux-courageous nondrama.
There's not a false note in the film, but maybe there's a difference between accuracy and truth.
The anomie of entitlement pushed to poisonous extremes is the basis of this provocation, which is as frustrating as it is intriguing.
A seemingly sincere movie about a deeply ironic and unfulfilled man as he belongs to a culture - hell, maybe even an entire generation - terrified of sincerity.
Transgressively brilliant... an itchy critique of entitlement starring avant-garde comedian Tim Heidecker as one of Williamsburg's overprivileged.
This is, in effect, "Arthur" meets "Jackass."
For a catalog of aggressively stupid, socially deviant male behavior, Rick Alverson's cheekily titled The Comedy is not without a certain subversive intelligence.
