O Brother, Where Art Thou?

O Brother Where Art Thou
Review: Set in the deep south during the 1930’s. Three escapees from a Mississippi prison chain gang set out on an adventure of a lifetime as they pursue their freedom and return to their homes.
Directors: Joel Coen and Ethan Coen (Uncredited)
Actors: George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, John Goodman and Holly Hunter
Year: 2000
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Crime and Drama
Conclusion: 4/5
Another great film from the Coen Brothers who never seem to fail. This film has got many wonderful but yet so many challenging experiences that these men have to go through on this journey. The characters have got so much about them and they come across so colorful. Fantastic camerawork/cinematography from Roger Deakins who always gets it spot on.  I also have to say that the soundtrack is wonderful to listen to. Apparently this is Joel and Ethan’s eighth collaborative effort. George Clooney agreed to do this film without even reading the script. At the Golden Globe Awards in 2001 this won 1 award and that was for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical (George Clooney). I think that this is one of George Clooney’s best performances.
