From Amazon.co.uk

Disenchanted with the daily drudge of crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney) busts loose. Except he's still shackled to his own chain-mates from the chain gang -- bad-tempered Pete (John Turturro), and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson). With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain -- before it's lost forever in a flood -- the three embark on the adventure of a lifetime in this hilarious offbeat road picture. Populated with strange characters, including a blind prophet, sexy sirens, and a one-eyed Bible salesman (John Goodman), it's an odyssey filled with chases, close calls, near misses, and betrayal that will leave you laughing at every outrageous and surprising twist and turn. --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

I'm not film enthusiast, and had never even heard of this one until I saw it on the listing for my 9 hour flight home from India. Flipping through the channels, the music made me stop at this one. Usually I have a hard time staying awake for a whole film on a night flight, but I just loved this film - so much so that I watched it all again 4 hours later, in preference to any of the others on offer. I have never, ever watched a film twice in one day before! I definitely want the soundtrack.

This is an excellent film, and an excellent blu-ray transfer. I will not belabor that point. However, others might be interested that despite Amazon's claims, this is a region-free blu-ray (plays in A, B, and C), so don't hesitate to buy it if you are in Europe and worried that it will not play. (The back cover also is marked A, B, C, but Amazon neglected to show that.)

Loosely based on the Odyssey, O Brother, Where Art Thou tells the story of three petty criminals who have escaped prison in order to claim a haul of treasure before it ends up at the bottom of a lake which is about to be created by the building of a new dam, and the many sidetracks and adventures they encounter on the way. Clooney is brilliant as Ulysses Everett McGill and the film's soundtrack is wonderful - beautifully evoking the depression-era America in which the film is set. A hilarious, beautifully shot and mythical film.

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2011 ALL-REGIONS BLU RAY REISSUE ***

"Hot Damn! It's The Soggy Bottom Boys!"

When the Coen Brothers unleashed "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" into cinemas in September 2000 - it was an audio and visual sensation. The DVD that followed in 2001 received equal praise. But little will prepare fans for this truly beautiful 2011 BLU RAY transfer - it's properly gorgeous to look at - and up there with the best this (often frustrating) format can offer...

When it was originally filmed on location - a 'lossless' digital process was used to fully realise the specific light and scenery of Depression-hit Mississippi in 1937 (beautiful gold and yellow hues). That process combined with the stunning cinematography of Roger Deakins both get to shine like never before. There are times when the visuals are quite literally breathtaking in their clarity. And the canvas to impress your eyes just keeps coming at you as the movie progresses from location to location - open fields, hay barns, twisted swamps, dust roads, river banks, inside period cars and beat-up trucks, the chain-gang detail, radio stations and bank interiors. Even in the notoriously difficult indoor scenes in ramshackle homesteads and around campfires at night - it all looks 'so' good. Add to this a blisteringly funny script full of savvy life-observations and brutal local colloquialisms - and it's hardly surprising that it was nominated for 2 Academy Awards in these areas (Best Script and Cinematography).

Defaulted to 2.35:1 aspect ratio - it has bars top and bottom of the screen - but even when stretched to full screen - it rarely loses any definition.

THE FILM)Putting their own unique spin on Homer's classic Odyssey, O Brother, Where Art Thou is another Coen brothers classic. In a Golden Globe winning performance, George Clooney plays Ulysses Everett McGill, a silver-tongued petty criminal who finds himself on a chain gang in deepest Mississippi. Together with a clumsy duo of lame losers, simple minded Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson) and maladjusted Pete (John Turturro), he scams his way off the chain gang and into the adventure of a lifetime as the three set off in search of a fortune in buried treasure... still shackled and hopelessly unprepared for the road ahead. Featuring a supporting cast of larger than life characters including John Goodman as Big Dan Teague, Holly Hunter as Everett's old flame Penny and Charles Durning as Governor Pappy O'Daniel, O Brother, Where Art Thou? is an irresistible mixture of high adventure, sidesplitting comedy and heartfelt emotion..
WHAT CAN I SAY?
Sometimes, you have to lose your way to get back home in this Serious Comedy with wonderful characters,The Coen Brothers have truly outdone themselves in this wonderful saga of three escaped convicts.with great music. It's the old folk sound, the kind of music that was written during a time when music was enjoyed as a part of day to day life. Enjoyed by everyone, chain-gangs, church choirs, and even prison escapees.
What really strikes me about this is the larger than life characters. Take clooney's character for example. His name is ulysses everet mcgill. You know that he must be something special with a name like that.with his Clark Gable-ish looks and character He is very charismatic and has the gift of the gab.Holly Hunter plays his estranged wife.John Turturro, who has played in at least all the other Coen and Coen movies that I have seen.

Format: DVD
It's a long time since I read Homer's Odyssey, so perhaps it's not surprising that I can't remember seeing any of this story in that story - well, hardly any. There's the blind seer, the sirens, the Cyclops, Pete seeming to be changed into a frog (the sort of trick Circe liked to pull), the fact that Everett's first name is Ulysses and his wife's name is Penny (Penelope), and a temporary associate of the boys attacks a herd of cattle ... . So, a few points of contact with The Odyssey, but it really only fits where it touches. But who cares? This is a brilliant film. Best I've seen in ages. I don't know why it's taken me so long to get round to watching it - probably put off by the title. Silly me. I loved The Hudsucker Proxy, The Big Lebowski, Raising Arizona - all fantastic Coen Bros films with dopey sounding titles. I should have just trusted them and watched this film years ago. To make up for lost time I watched it 3 times in the first week I had the DVD and kept skipping back to the beginning of the parts where The Soggy Bottom Boys sang "Man of Constant Sorrow". Fabulous music. And the dialogue is so clever, especially when you consider that the protagonists are more than slightly gormless - and they still give the impression of being idiots even whilst delivering these sparkling lines. Great comic acting. Great acting regardless of category, in fact. Another Coen master piece!
