The Coen brothers have turned into one of the most reliable teams in Hollywood. Their new film Inside Llewyn Davis depicts the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Oscar Isaac plays Llewyn Davis, a struggling folk singer who has recently lost his musical partner. His performance is remarkable taking into account that he sang all his own songs as well. As with all Coen brother films, he is not the only great character in the film. Both Justin Timberlake and John Goodman pop up and each have scene stealing moments.
It is a great time to celebrate the most memorable characters that have come out of the Coen brother's filmography. I set one rule for myself: no more than 2 characters from one film (or else I would have the whole Lebowski cast listed). So stir up a white Russian and enjoy.
