Prior to 2013, there was no question Oscar Isaac was talented; we just didn’t know how talented. This year, thanks to the Coen brothers, we found out.
In Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Inside Llewyn Davis,” Isaac gives a revelatory turn (and one of the best performances of the year) as the titular down on his luck folk artist, struggling to make a name for himself in the 1960s New York folk scene. Appearing in virtually every frame of the gorgeously lensed picture, Isaac is alternately hilarious and heartbreaking, off-putting and relatable. Plus the guy can sing.
