Watch Trailer

"It's a wild, whacked-out wonder. Coenheads rejoice."

— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"A wildly original movie with astonishingly varied moods and influences."

— Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

"From moment to moment, O Brother, Where Art Thou? is a pleasure. But when the Coens are really cooking, when the acting and the conception and the music all come together, it's something more -- Dogpatch rapture."

— Charles Taylor, Salon

"It's a new new thing, classic myth from both literature and the movies, commingled, set to great folk music, and untrammeled by any sense of predictability, urgency, realism or believability but hypnotic, graceful and seductive."

— Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
