INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS ATTRACTS RAVES AT CANNES


Looks like the Coens have gone and done it again. Inside Llewyn Davis has received stronger reviews than any other film in the official competition thus far. Here's a few of the early ones:

At Variety, Scott Foundas has nary a negative word to say on the film, singling out the cinematography (from Bruno Delbonnel, rather than Coen regular Roger Deakins) and the production design. The none-more-influential Todd McCarthy at The Hollywood Reporter writes, among his many compliments, the following statement - 'as stunning and singular as anything in the Coens' canon'. Ooh eck! And, on Twitter, more exultation from Awards Daily's Sasha Stone and The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw. It'll be released domestically in December, right in time for Oscar consideration!
