R-U-N-N-O-F-T to this O Brother, Where Art Thou? review

O Brother, Where Art Thou review

Plot

The best part about this movie is that even though it’s based on The Odyssey, it’s different enough that it isn’t always obvious…well, to the “casual observer”, anyway.

And by “casual observer”, I mean me.

Characters

You know how I always say I can’t separate George Clooney from the characters he plays? For some reason, that isn’t true with this movie.

John Turturro was by far the best character though.

Visuals

Lots of brown and tan, which helped make the movie feel old…which is a good thing.

Product Placement

Dapper Dan and Fop aren’t real, so it’s okay.

Rewatchability

I “watched” this at a “friend’s” house once about 10 years ago. What I mean by that is, she’s no longer my friend and I saw about 20 minutes of it, because she kept saying, ” I hate this part” and fast forwarding.

I’m not sure if it’s what the main character of Sullivan’s Travels had in mind when he wanted to make O Brother, Where Art Thou, but it’s still really good.

  1. The picture didn’t load. What did the movie score? I need to know!!! (Yes, you’ve made a bit of a TIWAM addict out of me.)

  2. Haven’t seen this in a long time, but I remember loving the use of music in it. My gf has the same George Clooney issue where she sees him in every role. I’ll have to ask her about this one. Here’s hoping that won’t be an issue in Gravity.

  3. I totallly foresaw this review before it posted…don’t ask me how :)
    Haven’t seen this in a long time either. I already have my next twenty or so films to review planned out, so maybe I’ll get to it…someday.

  4. such a great movie… but I’m watching John Carter as I type… oh there is going to be a review on my site that is not going to be pretty…

  5. 700!! And people say I watch too many movies! I just wrote my 600th and your blog’s younger than mine. Congrats and good one. Glad you saw this. Hopefully without someone skipping every other scene? Must’ve been a while ago you told me that story hahah….
