A Coen Brothers movie ... their imagining of the Greenwich Village folk music scene in 1961. Stars a talented singer named Oscar Isaac who plays kind of an awful guy. Full of little jokes that amuse the Coens, typical of their movies, dark jokes ... about a struggling artist looking to make it commercially ... several cast members from "Girls," those guys (Driver, Karpovsky) are getting a lot of work now, and Coen usuals like John Goodman. Wasn't that thrilled with it, but didn't fast forward at all, just over 100 minutes. Yellow, sideways rating.
