* DespairEventHorizon: Llewyn reaches this towards the end, [[spoiler:having his dreams of stardom crushed, finding out Jean slept with Pappi to get him his last gig, visiting his dementia-ridden father, and deciding to go back to the merchant marine only to find out he doesn't have the papers and is stuck in his old way of life.]]

** Jean is similarly foul mouthed and acerbic as Llewyn, and also seems to gain a completely incongruous, almost angelic quality when singing. However, she aims to earn some money and settle down, something Llewyn regards as "selling out". Also unlike Llewyn, she does not appear ready to accept any responsibility for her own mistakes and failings.

** The Gorfeins' cat must have experienced lots of adventures on the way home, lampshaded by his name [[spoiler:[[Literature/TheOdyssey Ulysses]]]] and the appearance of a poster for the [[ArtisticLicenseHistory 1963 film]] Literature/TheIncredibleJourney. This epic voyage of return stands in contrast to Llewyn's own ShaggyDogStory.

* HypocriticalHumor: Roland Turner gives an extended and presumably well-practised speech about how he doesn't make threats, because if he wants to screw you up he'll just do it with his voodoo powers and you'll never know he did. Which... sounds a lot like a threat.



* TheLastDJ: Llewyn sees himself this way, as aloof from all the phony and shallow careerism that he sees in his contemporaries like Troy Nelson. Then again, he sees any attempt to earn enough money to settle down and start a family as "selling out," so perhaps he is just making excuses for his own failures.

However, he also refuses to play for friends at a dinner party, claiming "that's just my job" -- again, this may be a cover, as he's upset about being reminded of Mike.



* MuseAbuse: Llewyn doesn't want to sell out, and wants to keep to the soul of folk music, sure. His life would be a lot better, though, if he quit antagonizing all of the people on whom he depends, starting with his sister.



* RedHerring: There a frequent story hooks that tease a shift in the plot, but they're all passed by so that the film remains a ShaggyDogStory:

* BrutalHonesty: Bud Grossman. After hearing Llewyn play a good, but rather academic, version of "The Death of Queen Jane," he states, "I'm not seeing a lot of money here."
