Film Series: O Brother, Where Art Thou?

2000. USA. Dir: Joel and Ethan Coen. With George Clooney. 106 min. 

Three dopey cons flee a chain gang to claim a buried treasure, beginning a hilarious journey on which they encounter blind prophets, sexy sirens, overnight radio fame, and John Goodman. It’s The Odyssey meets the Depression-era rural South meets musical-adventure-satire, with a killer folky soundtrack to boot.
