O Brother, Where Art Thou? Reviews
A rather poor entry from the Coen's here. It looks great, and has good performances, but other than that the movie feels like a flat, boring, one note song that I'd rather not listen to again.
This film is Set Mississippi in the 1930's.
Actress who play Ms. Incredible as George Clooney's husband.
This Film begins in black and white with prisoners working then turns to brown and white. Then we cut to three prisoners who escaped.
It has one got a train.
George Nelson shoots cows in robbery escape with money blowing out of car.
Now people from radio recording station want the prisoners and African American for a contract for Soggy Bottom Boys the band after hearing the recording made a big hit on radio. the band they made for $10.00 each for recording one song.
George Clooney constantly uses Dapper Dan use for hair.
I am not a big fan of the overexposed orange and yellow look to this film.
This is a redneck movie in my opinion.
Do not seek the treasure. It is a trap.
George Clooney says that There is no treasure. There never was. It was about getting to George Clooney trying to get back to his wife to avoid her getting married. George Clooney only needed the other two to help him get out of the jail. George Clooney's Wife kept saying he was run over by a train.
Klu klux klan has black singer who sold himself to the devil.
I am not a big fan of the music. Not my kind of music.
Soggy Bottom Boys the band sounds stupid. Sounds like a terrible gross name for a band. Sounds like someone messed up there pants in the bathroom or in the swamp.
Flood saved them from the devils hanging.
The film ends in black and white.
I was not into this film mainly because it was not my kind of film.
Two of the prisoners are superstitious and one is big believer in God. George Clooney's character is the only looking for a more logical answer based upon science rather than looking to supernatural, superstitious, Devil, or God for the reason for how or why things occur.
This film I guess shares similar characteristics to that of Homer and the Odyssey but told in a southern fashion but I did not enjoy that.
Even though it encompasses themes like the Depression, racism, crime and even includes a KKK gathering, the film sustains a gleefully ironic and pleasant mood throughout, similar to something like Forest Gump. It's so fun that I didn't even notice the absence of any real cohesive story. It dances delightfully through one outrageous event after another and builds slowly to become an enthralling and absurd journey. And I loved all the clever period details, like the Slick Dan's hair gel, the cars, the bloodhounds, the populist politics. A lot of creativity and fun was put into the film. It was odd, but I really enjoyed it.
