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.
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.
Lots of brown and tan, which helped make the movie feel old…which is a good thing.
Dapper Dan and Fop aren’t real, so it’s okay.
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.
