was a great film that was loosely based on Homers Odyssey. This film uses southern racism, Christian values, and folk music to help tie all of the mini adventures of Everett and his companions together. With the use of a sepia style color it really does a great job of making you feel like you were back with Everett and his companions in the great depression. Director Joel Coen does a great job of bringing together the feel and the music of the time to help you feel more compassionate about Everett’s journey.
