Our take

Returning to their melancholic mode, the Coens won yet another well-earned prize at Cannes for this touching and tragicomic period piece. Set in 1960s Greenwich Village at the beginnings of the folk music revival scene, it stars the brilliant Oscar Isaac (plus cat!) as our weary titular antihero.
