O Brother, Where Art Thou? review
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
Based on The Odyssey (for all those who slept through english comp in college, that’s the one after the war (The Iliad) when he’s trying to get home), the Coen brothers deliver a musical and yet carefully dress it as a comedic drama. I really enjoyed this one; the story, the twists, and the performances (led by a George Clooney) are all top-notch. Everything just works, and John Goodman is a great surprise; the best reveal in the movie, probably. Don’t miss this.
