What do you get when you cross The Odyssey, the Deep South, the Great Depression and The Three Stooges…? Well, you get another madcap Coen Brothers movie, of course — one that also launched the year’s best soundtrack! It’s O BROTHER, WHERE ARE THOU? (2001)
This shaggy, roller-coaster ride (very) loosely based on Homer’s epic poem starring George Clooney (here a Clark Gable doppelgänger), John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, John Goodman, Holly Hunter and the late Charles Durning. As with all Coen Brothers movies, O Brother Where Art Thou is brilliantly written, acted, and directed. And it’s hilarious.
