“Inside Llewyn Davis” is a new kind of project for the Coen brothers to take on. To an extent, the film is a musical of sorts along the lines of “Once.” In addition to being a love letter to old folk songs, it’s also one of the most brutally honest, if not disheartening, movies about the cruel nature of show business. While different territory for the masterful directing duo, “Inside Llewyn Davis” still has the Coen’s distinctive signature all over it. As with many of their films, they find the comedy in bleakness and the bleakness in comedy, resulting in a narrative that’s either saying a lot or saying nothing at all. However you view it, boy is it fascinating to watch.

Every day of our lives, we make assumptions. We assume that the people we encounter regularly will behave in the manner to which we are accustomed. We assume that if we take care of our cars, they will get us to where we want to go. In fact, we need to make assumptions to bring order to our world. But in some parts of our life — such as investing — assumptions can prove dangerous.
After watching two very good college football teams go at it last night, I felt compelled to express my thoughts regarding the seemingly prevailing culture of sports fans. Even though the final score was in favor of Stanford, I found it quite disturbing regarding two items: the TV commentators and the home team’s fans. Until it was evident that Stanford had thoroughly trounced ASU, the TV men could not talk enough about ASU, its seven straight home wins, its fabulous coach, Todd Graham, his PAC-12 Coach of the Year honors, while panning the ASU faithful while not once showing any of the Stanford fans in the stadium. I might add full disclosure: I am an former ASU varsity letter winner in baseball and I have a grandson playing for Stanford.
Sometimes it takes several things to put together a good season.
Everyone had reservations when it was announced Peter Jackson would be splitting up “The Hobbit” into a trilogy. Do we really need three separate movies? Can’t this 300-page book be done in one movie? Isn’t this just a ploy to milk a franchise and make an extra couple billion dollars? When “An Unexpected Journey” finally came out last December, we all found that these initial concerns were pretty much spot-on.
