203. O Brother Where Art Thou? (2000)


Deceitful, two-faced she-woman. Never trust a female Delmar, remember that one simple precept and your time with me will not have been ill spent.

There are a few recurring themes on this blog. One of them is that the Coen Brothers make some awful fine movies. A retelling of Homer's Oddysey in the Depression Era south with music from T-Bone Burnett and Alison Krauss and John Goodman as Cyclops-esque Big Dan Teague. YES, PLEASE!!! One of the coolest things about this movie that most people probably don't know is that it uses extensive ever-present special effects. The movie was filmed in Summer and then the lush green was digitally transformed to brown and tan hues to reflect the hopelessness of the escapees' surroundings during the Great Depression. Pretty Cool!
