A new clip from the Coen brothers’ new film Inside Llewyn Davis proves once again how brilliant the duo is at writing every day dialogue.
The exclusive clip from Moviefone is actually a couple days old, but for some reason it is just making the rounds now. It’s a fantastic clip, so better late than never.
Here’s the clip that shows Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) visiting the record label. What really works masterfully is the banter between Mel, the executive, and Ginny, his secretary.
We’ve seen the tail end of that clip appear in most of the footage released so far, so it’s interesting to see what precedes it. It’s easy to see here where Llewyn is at mindset wise, as he’s easily frustrated about not being given opportunities that he deserves.
If you don’t deem it necessary to see the film first, the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack is now available for purchase. On Amazon you can purchase it in MP3 format, on CD, or, if you’re cool like that, on Vinyl.
The soundtrack is great, and it really does stand on its own. This is true to the extent that there will be a concert movie on Showtime inspired by the soundtrack. Titled Another Day, Another Time, the film will include much of the cast of Inside Llewyn Davis as well as musicians including Patti Smith, Elvis Costello, Jack White, and Marcus Mumford, among others.
Thanks, The Playlist.
