The Coen Brothers’ darkly comic odyssey about a Greenwich Village folk singer in the early 1960s struggling against odds that seem hopelessly stacked against him—and mostly because of him—hums along to a terrific, bountiful authentic soundtrack by producer T Bone Burnett, the cast (which includes Oscar Isacc, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake), Marcus Mumford and other performers. Bonus features include a 40-minute making-of documentary, which includes interviews with the cast, directors and musicians, and a look at how the moviemakers created a folk scene of half a century ago in modern-day New York City.
