O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Absolutely loved the sepia-toned colour correction, the use of real-life character cameos, and the ingenious use of period accurate music. An absolutely fun ride, and one I will definitely revisit. 10/10.

After finally getting the Mrs to start watching Fargo (the TV series), I wanted to give her a direct taste of the Coen Brothers. I saw this movie when it first came out, and I have always loved it. The music is amazing, even if the dubbing is terrible when it comes to the singing. This was one of the first Coen Brothers movies I saw where I knew it theirs going in (and what that meant). Great characters, and fantastic dialogue. The reworking of Homer’s The Odyssey is well done without being too obvious along the way. The digital colour-correction lends a old-fashioned look, and adds to the surreal quality of the story. I wonder what Coen Brothers film I should introduce her to next? 10/10.
