2013. USA. Dir: Joel & Ethan Coen. With Oscar Isaac. 104 min.
In a melancholy odyssey worthy of its own legend, a struggling folksinger wanders 1960s Greenwich Village in search of a couch to sleep on, a shot at solo musical success, and an orange housecat. Isaac’s prodigious musical and dramatic talents imbue the title character with a sensitive artistry that offsets his outward asshole-ness.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
