      O Brother, Where Art Thou? Reviews

      Teens might enjoy this offbeat Odyssey adaptation.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Dec 26, 2010

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

      Full Review | Nov 7, 2007

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

      The Coens' usual arch deliberateness isn't quite as deliberate, and there's an appealing shagginess to some of the episodes and performances.

      Are the Coens just being smart alecks here, or are they saying something sourly profound about American popular culture?

      Full Review | Sep 4, 2001

      Simply, O Brother, Where Art Thou? has one of the richest and most satisfying soundtracks I've heard in years.

      Full Review | Apr 13, 2001

      It's a wild, whacked-out wonder.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/5 | Feb 6, 2001

      Leaves a sour taste.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/4 | Jan 12, 2001

      A roller-coaster ride with a goofy fun-house spirit, it's full of clever pranks.

      Full Review | Jan 12, 2001

      You have to admire how deep and irreverently O Brother goes into our culture to find its material.

      Full Review | Jan 12, 2001

      This is the funniest Coen brothers movie since 1996's Fargo.

      Full Review | Jan 12, 2001

      O Brother itself is just frustrating, mostly because we know what the Coens are capable of when truly inspired.

      Full Review | Jan 12, 2001

      A flattening pile of artifice and conceit disguised as a road comedy.

      Full Review | Jan 12, 2001

      Devilishly delightful.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Jan 12, 2001

      An especially elaborate variation on Hee Haw.

      Full Review | Jan 12, 2001

      A giddy merriment blessed with the Coens' skewed signature wit and the year's best soundtrack.

      Full Review | Jan 11, 2001

      Mixing dark humor with high spirits, the brothers take some wild risks that pay off surprisingly well.

      Full Review | Original Score: A- | Jan 11, 2001

      The surprise is how much fruitful digression such plotlessness makes possible. With no particular place to go, this hobo of a movie is free to roam the damnedest places.

      Full Review | Dec 29, 2000

      A Coen brothers' also-ran is better than some filmmakers' best.
