In winter 2012, the Coen brothers arrived on the Lower East Side to film scenes for its next movie, Inside Llewyn Davis. The effort, loosely based on the life of folk great Dave Van Ronk, became a time machine of sorts, transforming the neighborhood into a temporary visage of 1960s New York. Out came the classic cars in the East Village, and the faux subway stop for 7th Avenue on Mott Street.

The trailer went live last week. Bob Dylan provides the musical accompaniment with a dusty gem. It’s called “Farewell,” a somewhat obscure title that was initially recorded during the 1964 sessions for The Times They Are a-Changin’.

Well, the lack of oversight we’ve noted at […]
