Well up to the brothers' usual high standards.

Everyone who has the capacity for abstract thought, raise your hands . . . and take this Coen brothers' journey.

Even with its mock-pretentious parallelism to The Odyssey...O Brother, Where Art Thou? refuses to take itself seriously, which is both its principal failing and its charm. [Blu-ray]

Teens might enjoy this offbeat Odyssey adaptation.

May not be the funniest or wackiest movie from Joel and Ethan Coen, but it is easily their most ambitious work to date.

This lightly engaging trifle could have been more fun with a greater helping of the Coens' antic spirit.

It has a remarkable (if playfully skewed) fidelity to the epic poem of mythical struggle, even if the filmmaking brother act never actually read Homer's work...

In its best moments (of which there are a few), O Brother, Where Art Thou? has a twang to it.

The Coens are like party acquaintances who keep changing the subject and then staring at you quizzically when you can't follow the thread, or when you stop wanting to follow it, but who then block all your exit routes from their obnoxious conversation.

The ferociously one-dimensional characters here make this muddy ramble more of a guilty pleasure than a success.

It's not up there with Lebowski, but its still a darn good tale.

After making what are still probably their two best features, the Coen brothers came up with their worst, a piece of pop nihilism.

The Coen's tale of three escaped convicts has more to do with Homer the Simpson than Homer the poet.

Great dialogue, superb 'Scope camerawork from Roger Deakins, and a genuinely wondrous deus ex machina are among the delights.

Looking Closer

Watching Clooney, Turturro, and Nelson ham it up singing 'Man of Constant Sorrow' is one of this year's greatest big-screen delights.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? is the Being John Malkovich of the year 2000. The most remarkable thing about it is just how any sane studio executive agreed to back it.

It's an odd, charming movie, not for everyone, but definitely for Coen acolytes. A great adaptation. And buy the soundtrack.

As a big-budget film from two of our great contemporary social satirists, it falls short.
