From those getting their long-awaited big breaks to newcomers making a splash, this next heap should be closely watched come Oscar time and in the years to come.
The Coen Brothers' latest music-infused film, 'Inside Llewyn Davis,' follows a young folk singer as he submerges himself in the Greenwich Village music scene in the early '60s. The film is revving up for a benefit concert this Sunday, airing on Showtime, to showcase its incredible soundtrack and musical talent, and you can preview what's in store, as the first track from the film has debuted online.
There are no filmmakers more consistent in churning out masterpieces on a regular basis than Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, whose filmography is almost entirely made up of great films, underrated gems and, um, 'The Ladykillers.' Every new Coen Bros. film is an event and 'Inside Llewyn Davis' is no different -- it may not have the major star power of 'True Grit' or 'No Country For Old Men,' but there is no 2013 film that has us more excited.
It's arguable that the Coen Brothers are the greatest working directors of our day. Sure, there's Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino (among others), but Joel and Ethan Coen have delivered some of the best films of all time, and some of the greatest films of the last ten years. Their latest, 'Inside Llewyn Davis,' opens in December and it's likely that it will be another Oscar favorite.
