1. Fresh Air critic-at-large John Powers on the new Coen brothers' film, Inside Llewyn Davis, that he recently saw at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival:

I have not been a great Coen champion or detractor. I’ve been kind of up and down on them. I think this may be their best film. … It’s really, really funny. It’s funny in a way that the Coen brothers often aren’t funny, which is it’s not snide-funny, it’s kind of warm, sly funny. … It’s the most muted, quiet, sweet film they’ve ever made, I think, in part, because they actually love the folk songs.
