Only Joel and Ethan Coen, the fraternal director and manufacturer staff in the back of Artwork-space hits such as The Massive Lebowski and Fargo and masters of quirky and ultra-fashionable genre subversion, would dare nick the plot line of Homer’s Odyssey for a comic book picaresque saga about three cons at the run in Nineteen Thirties Mississippi. Our wandering hero on this case is one Ulysses Everett McGill, a slick-tongued sensible guy with a factor about hair pomade (George Clooney, blithely sending up his own dapper symbol) who talks his chain-gang friends (Coen-movie common John Turturro and newcomer Tim Blake Nelson) into lighting fixtures out after a few buried loot he claims to understand of. En route they arrive up towards a prophetic blind man on a railroad truck, a burly, one-eyed baddie (the ever-magnificent John Goodman), a trio of horny making a song girls, a blues guitarist who is bought his soul to the devil, a brace of crooked politicos at the stump, a manic-depressive bank robber, and–smartly, you get the theory. Into this, their so much comfy movie but, the Coens have tossed a beguiling ragbag of inconsequential scenarios, a wealth of looping, left-box discussion, and an entire stash of gags each verbal and visible. O Brother (the name’s lifted from Preston Sturges’s classic 1941 comedy Sullivan’s Travels) is moreover graced with sparkling, burnished images from Roger Deakins and a masterly soundtrack from T-Bone Burnett that will pay loving homage to American ’30s people types–blues, gospel, bluegrass, jazz, and more. And simply to end up that the brothers have not lost their knack for dangerous-style humor, we get a Ku Klux Klan rally choreographed like a pass between a Nuremberg rally and a Busby Berkeley musical. —Philip Kemp
