    Inside Llewyn Davis

    ★★★★½

    The shot of the cat looking out of the subway window is transcendent. Though seemingly bleak and melancholic, when the film ended, I felt buoyed, like a sense of hope.

    A vast, beautiful, and impressive film that really communicates the ideas and forms of an epic poem. Motivations, meanings, reality, identity are all ever changing. The sounds of the environment and language echo, the chorus of whispers build. Like Lowery's earlier film A Ghost Story, The Green Knight is interested in questions of legacy, fate, storytelling.

    Jealousy's a bitch, sorry to the wannabes.
