Great storytelling

I loved this film's storytelling, the depictions of the south and it's culture during the depression, and it's wonderful characters. It's a fun film to watch with lots of sly references. The music was great.

Odyssey remake worth watching

The Coen brothers once again make a wonderfully crafted movie. Almost the entire Bart and Fink cast comes together on this wonderful journey. The literary and film references do not end at Odyssey, yet they never get convoluted as most Odyssey remakes have in the past. The cast was brillant; Jonh Turturro's performance was both over the top and subtle. John Goodman as the evil one eyed Bible salesman and Michael Badalucco as the manic-depressive bank robber were work the ticket alone. The Coen's teased the performance of a lifetime from George Clooney who tends to be stiff and too self-conscious for this kind of role. George played Everett full force and never backs down from unworldliness that was required of him. The environment was an essential character; you could feel the heat, the dust, and the deep traditions of the South. In fact the environment often played as a foil to over the top characters, grounding them in their world. The music as well was essential to this film and well deserved the Grammy for best soundtrack. The eerie music was constantly illuminating scenes and giving depth, character and movement to the movie.
