Not being a fan of the Coen Brothers or George Clooney, anyone can see the
skepticism I took into the theater. Once again, someone in Hollywood dares
to create something different. This time it was those zanie (for a temporary
lack of a better word) Coens doing "their thing" to one of the great works
in literary history. Who would've ever thought Homer had this in mind? I
don't know where this film is going to fit in the history books of
Hollywood, but it will be in both mine and many others DVD or VHS library.
It is one of those films that you can watch over and over. The story is
brilliantly written. Clean and entertaining, with a couple of Gumpesque
brushes with fame, great performances by Clooney, Turturro, Nelson, and a
brief but hilarious Holly Hunter. Being born in Mississippi and raised in
other parts of the south, I wish more people would poke a little fun at us
like this. They even invoke a soundtrack fitting for the rural south. You
are NOT doing anything better this weekend, go see this movie!
