Individual setpieces shine — especially a Ku Klux Klan rally that turns into a musical number — and Clooney’s turn as a vain ex-con trying to win back his wife announced to the world that, yes, he could be funny in a movie. It has its pleasures, but this is possibly the messiest film in the directors’ body of work.

[This] was the first film that confirmed that the Coens could make a genuinely cheap joke. Suddenly, the humor that had coasted along the line of condescension had crossed that threshold and every character was treated as if they were pure evil or truly ignorant, prideful fools or scoundrels devoid of any real humanity… This, however, is not to say that O Brother, Where Art Thou? is necessarily a bad movie. In fact, it’s a largely enjoyable one, not lacking in intriguing stylistic flashes.

The ornate rhetoric and the air of studied proficiency are customarily so potent in a Coen Brothers picture that they almost dare you to offer too simple a rejoinder. But let’s try: O Brother sounds great, looks luscious, and has some moments of shambolic charm, but it’s also desperately performed, indifferently directed, and parodistically ill-structured, with a streak of real callousness slashed right down its middle.
