Huffington Post - about 2 years
Oscar Isaac has played heroes like Poe Dameron, misanthropic artists like Llewyn Davis and menacing innovators like Nathan Bateman. The Internet loves him all the same. But in "Mojave," which premiered at last year's Tribeca Film Festival and opens in limited release on Friday, he is an all-out homicidal weirdo. The Huffington Post has an exclusive clip from the movie, which was written and directed by "The Departed" and "Kingdom of Heaven" scribe William Monahan.  "Mojave" revolves around Thomas (Garrett Hedlund), a suicidal artist who encounters his unfriendly doppelgänger (Isaac) in the desert, after which said doppelgänger attempts to dismantle Thomas' life. The clip finds the men in a gun-wielding standoff at Thomas' lush Los Angeles home.

'Inside Llewyn Davis' Review: The First Word On The Coens' New Film
Huffington Post - about 4 years
In an alley behind a cafe in New York's Greenwich Village, an unidentified stranger knocks singer Llewyn Davis to his knees. Within the first 10 minutes of the Coen brothers' latest dark comedy, the filmmakers acquaint us with the curiously obscure, as violent fits are not usually associated with folk music. The genesis of this animosity is left unanswered until the final moments of the film, leaving the lingering off-kilter question: Why would anyone beat up a folk singer? Thus, we have the perfect onset for this bleak and witty tale of a striving musician. Here the Coen brothers pluck at the beatnik scene of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Helmed by long-time Coen collaborator T Bone Burnett, the tunes in this film — which are performed live — bare morbid undertones that correspond with the foremost concepts of the story: poverty, abortion, disappointment and death.
