It does have that Coen stamp all over it and while it is occasionally amusing this is a film that never truly sets sail, and it does unfortunately just leave the impression of being unforgettable.

A film I might need to see again. Saw it at a very young age, and while I admired its cleverness, I was never overly fascinated or interested by it. My matured age might change that, if I were to revisit it.

It's a good film. An amusing one. One that entertained me throughout its running time. But is it a step down from what the Coen brothers usually dish up whenever they tackle these types of films? Yeah, it kinda is. There are plenty of amusing moments and memorable scenes here, but that's essentially all the film is. A couple of stand alone scenes. It works well enough, as the scenes themselves are good. But it prevents us from getting a properly and fully focused story, as well characters to care about.

The film is more or less an homage to old Hollywood, and thus we get some really long scenes of singing and dancing. Those are rather enjoyable, all though a bit overlong. I do not wish to go too hard on this film, as I enjoyed it a lot for what it was. It amused me quite a bit, and it's wonderfully shot and acted. The problem is however that there's not a lot to stick too here, and definitively not much of a reason to return to this film. Unlike most of the Coen brothers previous work.

I think of Inside Llewyn Davis as solid filmmaking more than anything else. It's not really anything that I got emotionally invested in or cared to deeply about. I appreciated the acting, the variety of the characters, the cinematography and I enjoyed the music. It feels very much like a Coen film, but this was more enjoyable as a look at the craftsmanship than what they were actually trying to say with it.

Raising Arizona might possibly be something of an acquired taste. I know that I deeply appreciated it more now than when I originally saw it. The wacky jokes, bizarre characters and quirky situations may not land well with everyone, but I found it to be very entertaining this time around. The chase sequence is a masterpiece when it comes to comedy and Holly Hunter is a darling.

The dark humor of Fargo is so on point that it's actually quite unbelievable. That the Coen's manages to take situations and crimes that are truly tense and horrific, and imbue them with enough comedy to make them feel naturally funny is a tremendous achievement. Carried by strong performances by typical "character actors", gorgeous cinematography and a plot that is consistently unpredictable, Fargo is nothing short of a brilliant film.

Arguably the greatest comedy of all time, at least in my humble opinion. Brilliant writing combined with a hilarious plot and terrific performances from actors who truly inhabits their weird characters.
