One of the Cohen Bros lighter, jollier forays into the human condition you'll be glad to hear. Loosely based on Homer's Odyssey, relocated to the 1930s Deep South, its by turns picturesque, whimsical, charming and riotous. George Clooney has a great deal of fun as Ulysses Everett McGill (complete with pomade-enhanced hair), on the run with his two hapless friends, after being sprung from a chain gang, and desperate to rediscover some stolen loot from a bank heist. Along the way they encounter many strange characters, even for a Cohen Bros film set in the Deep South, including some Sirens, a cyclops, Baby Face Nelson, a KKK Lynch mob and a blind prophet...you get the idea. The authentic period soundtrack is a treat to the ears, and rumour has it we will be treated to the 'Sing -a-long version' complete with lyrics enabling us to join in..
