O Brother Where Art Thou 
O Brother Where Art Thou review
2.5/4 stars

Fans of folk music with a somewhat lack of direction for the leads would enjoy this. Everett McGill (Clooney), Pete Hogwallop (Turturro), and Delmar O'Donnell (Nelson) escape from a chain gang at Parchman Farm. They encounter different personalities along the way. In this raters opinion, not one of the best from the directors in terms of its plot. Screenplay effective with one of the best lines - "Everything's gonna be put on electricity and run on a paying basis. Out with the old spiritual mumbo jumbo, the superstitions, and the backward ways. We're gonna see a brave new world where they run everybody a wire and hook us all up to a grid. Yes, sir, a veritable age of reason." and "Everybody's lookin' for answers." Leave it to the Coen's to exhibit symbolism, which on this film include change, faith, crime, fame and racism. Cinematography and look of the picture was impressive. Performances were solid but the lack of sufficient humor and clarity of the story brings the picture down. O Brother Where Art Thou was like a miniature musical instead of an effective journey.
