Movie review

O Brother Where Art Thou?

Delectable nostalgic film:

Toe tapping “can” song
I am a Man song

Journey without seeking the treasure
Cows can’t swim, roofs measure

Little people push brooms
Fiancés deck grooms

Politicians run out on a rail
Some dance, with their tail

Baby face throws Bi-polar
Getaway car-high roller

Sirens sing then whisk away
Leaving toads behind that day

Blind rail traveler foretells all
But the rail car scene, Oh man- that fall!

“Kin is kin”- “gopher Everett”? 
“Dapper Dan man”, with a hair net

Some scenes I’d cut
Not necessary they put 

But otherwise a great dime
About three men “not” doing time

I’ve seen it about 4 times, still singing the songs

    Your words have a way: they do justice to a man in constant sorrow.

    Oh man my favorite song is when Tommy's sitting by the tree during the nighttime fire scene. I think it's called 'Hard time Killing Floor Blues' or someting lke that. I felt like it stood out from the other more cheerful sounding songs though they were excellent as well. - interesting tribute:)

    When you spoke of the politicians daincing "with their tails," I couldn't help but think of the movie "Wag the Dog." Very astute observation. Yet I know you were describing images from another movie. And there are a lot of scenes that could be cut from movies, leaving more to the imagination. Excellent writing with provocative imagery, Alexandra! Love, Carolyn
