What a great movie: O Brother, Where Art Thou?

with one comment

I just rewatched it, and what a very great movie it is. And it’s on Netflix.

Interesting how the story mode of fable and myth enables certain things. The three sirens for the three men: you couldn’t use that in regular fiction because too coincidental, whereas in fable and myth it is not coincidental, it’s inevitable. And also efficient: no backstory required.

The countryside is like the sea: long stretches with no people, then separated encounters and adventures.
