O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
One of 2000's best!
A sheer delight! This Coen brothers film takes wit, and whimsy to a new level. One doesn't have to be a scholar of Homer's "Odyssey", or even be acquainted with it's framework to enjoy this retelling of a near-impossible journey. To credit Ethan Coen's writing solely with the movie's success is irresponsible; the writing alone does not carry the movie. Rather, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" sees fine-tuned performances from George Clooney, Tim Blake Nelson, and John Turturro; playful, mood-rendering cinematography; easy-handed direction from Joel Coen; AND Ethan Coen's adept recreation of Homer work together as a well-oiled machine. If just one of these aspects of the movie was neglected, the film would have remained watchable; however, it would have failed to be the piece of cinematic candy that it is. Highly recommended.
