'Inside Llewyn Davis' Spoiler-Free Video Review

The Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis (which rolls out to more cities today) begins with a folk singer getting beat up in an alleyway, a scene that served as the inspiration for the whole film. From that idea, the Coens came up with a story that would "fit around that and explain that incident." The resulting film is small in scope, but one that actively subverts genre expectations, and that's loaded with pathos and tragedy.
