O Brother Where Art Thou
There are so many things that impress in O Brother Where Art Thou? Theres George Clooney check. A stellar cast including Holly Hunter, Charles Durning and John Turturro check. Theres a swampy blue grass soundtrack, which got a Grammy for its troubles. And there are the Midas-like skills of cinemas favourite brothers, Ethan and Joel Coen.
O Brother Where Art Thou is a re-telling of Homers Odyssey (bet you wouldnt have guessed that). Set in the depression-era southern states, it is a Stooge-like stagger through bad times and mad times of three escaped convicts who unwittingly embark on an unlikely musical career. Charming, funny and unique, and as good as the Coen Bros get.
