Tonight Movie Night!

Yes folks, it's nothing big news or nothing, just a movie night. O Brother where art thou?

Been thinking of this movie all day. Especially the part when they load the politician on a board and run him out the door for denouncing their favorite band. Reminds me of someone we all wish we could do, bit instead of a favorite band, the beloved United States Postal Service.

Though, that board needs to be wide, Dumbas is kinda bigheaded...

6. One of my all time favorites.

Coen Brothers are by far my favorite filmmakers.

Such a gorgeous film visually—O Brother and The Right Stuff are the top two in terms of cinematography. Plus the writing and the acting—Clooney especially, but also Tuturro and Blake Nelson.

Plus the call backs to classic films like the Wizard of Oz and Cool Hand Luke. And its obviously overall inspiration of The Odyssey.

And of course the music.

I think my favorite scene might have to be when the devilish sheriff is about to hang the main characters right before the flood comes rolling in and Clooney’s character makes a final appeal to God.

Just a perfect mix of acting, music and cinematography.
