Hot Oscar Video: The Sound Of 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

In this video, directors Joel and Ethan Coen explain how their collaboration with T Bone Burnett created a musical sound that was as important as dialogue in capturing the early ’60s folk music scene in Inside Llewyn Davis. Here, they explain how they and Oscar Isaac pulled it off in the CBS Films release. I had the opportunity to moderate a panel in Deadline’s Contenders Event last month. After Burnett and Isaac got done explaining the keys to recreating the sound of an emerging musical movement, Isaac got up with his six string and memorably performed Green, Green Rocky Road, a song from the film. It was certainly a highlight of an event full of them.

      1. As a firm believer every film should have a cat, and animals deserve nomination just as much as, if not more than, people, it damned well should be! I was very disappointed not to see it / them (there were three in total, I believe) credited in the end crawl.

  1. I don’t get the hoopla with this film. It was very meh…

    I agree that the cat was the best part.

    Short Term 12 was a much better movie.
