Now playing in theaters is one of the best films of the year, Joel and Ethan Coen‘s Inside Llewyn Davis.  The story takes place in the Greenwich Village folk scene in 1961, and follows singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) as he struggles with his career and strained personal relationships.  Loaded with incredible performances, an all-star cast (featuring Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John GoodmanGarrett HedlundF. Murray AbrahamAdam DriverStark Sands, and Max Casella), and a fantastic soundtrack (put together by T-Bone Burnett), Inside Llewyn Davis should not be missed.  For more on the film, read Matt’s review.

At the Los Angeles press day, I landed a video interview with T-Bone Burnett.  He talked about what it was like working for the Coen Brothers, what song was the toughest to figure out, and how much he learned during the making of Michael Cimino’s Heaven’s Gate (he tells some great stories).  Hit the jump to watch.
