Newfound fame and adulation might be dizzying -- "We're trying not to let it overwhelm us," Price said over the phone as the wheels kept turning -- but Lake Street Dive is grounded enough to realize what it means to finally stand in the on-deck circle with home run potential.

What happens to a musician when desperation overshadows inspiration? The atmospheric new film Inside Llewyn Davis, written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, tracks a grieving folk singer-songwriter in search of his Muse -- or any Muse.

We Are All Inside Llewyn Davis: The Brothers Coen and Me

Recently, when I sat down with the Coen Brothers in Beverly Hills to ask why they'd chosen to tell Llewyn's story rather than that of, say, a Dylan-like figure (i.e., a first-rate artist surrounded by lesser talents), both Coens seemed genuinely surprised by the question.

ReThink Review: Inside Llewyn Davis -- Don't Think Twice, It's All Right (Not to Like It)

After being outsiders, the Coens are in the strange position of having critics seemingly tripping over each other to lionize whatever they do -- and I feel like that's what might be happening with their latest film Inside Llewyn Davis.

We are awash in films examining the Beats and the roots of the generation shift that occurred from the late 1950s through the 1960s - but none with a clearer eye than Joel and Ethan Coen's Inside Llewyn Davis.

Inside Llewyn Davis plays out like a prayer sung in the freezing dark of night to a bright, warm future morning to come. It is the story of a man left out in the cold with only his guitar and his songs.

The Hill Town plays collectively are an epic portrait of rural poverty, displaced love, and the boundless angst that can propel someone into a different life while leaving a fragmented past behind.

Susan Pourfar is used to playing out of the ordinary roles. She earned an array of awards for her portrayal of Sylvia in the Nina Raine comedy-drama play Tribes. You'll recognize her from her recurring role as Becky Flynn on ABC's hit series, Scandal.

Theater: Ethan Coen Births A Play; "Simpsons" Survives; Shaw Thrives!

When a play ends and the audience is caught short -- uncertain of whether to applaud -- it's a clear sign the show is one or two drafts away from being ready. That's certainly the case for Ethan Coen's first full-length play.

Inside Llewyn Davis is a compassionate reminder of how hard it is to be an artist, and of the great legacy musicians leave behind. At the end of the day, when a civilization is assessed with the clarity of historical perspective, it is the arts that most define it: architecture, painting, plays, philosophy, music.

Thank God for the Coen Brothers!

At a time when a movie like Django Unchained can earn a Best Screenplay Oscar, I'm grateful for the Coen Brothers. At a time when a director insists on putting hip-hop music into a Roaring Twenties period picture, I'm grateful for the Coen Brothers. Just why am I grateful? Well, let me count the ways.

Three plays for the price of one sounds like a promising proposition, especially when well-known writers Woody Allen, Ethan Coen, and Elaine May are the forces behind them.

Theater: Woody Allen Plus Elaine May Plus Ethan Coen = Meh

The least enjoyable possibility when seeing a show after it opens is that it gets bad reviews and everyone just politely soldiers on as best they can. Sadly, this is the case for Relatively Speaking, three one acts with a cast of 15 and direction by John Turturro.
