O Brother, Where Art Thou

I'm unable to type much, as I have a partially paralysed hand. The accompanying pain has diminished but full movement has yet to return.

I've spent my convalescence re-viewing Coen Brother movies and discovered that no two film reviewers agree on which movies are their best. For what it's worth, Raising Arizona, Blood Simple and Millers Crossing didn't make the grade for me, but O Brother, Where Art Thou reminded me of how funny George Clooney is under their direction.

I also found the Siren scene seen above, reminiscent of Christopher Knowles posts on the subject, although in this instance, the timing lacks synchronicity, and thus a cigar is just a cigar.

More on that later.
