    Subject: Oh Brother Where Art Thou
    Date: Jul 12, 2002
    Sender: JoanPrevious | Next

    I've read many reviews and opinions regarding this movie, all refering to Homer's Oddysee. Yes, it is loosely based on it, but almost more strongly is it based on the Wizard of Oz. Watch the movie again, and really look for the clues (some obvious, some more subtle.) Pappy as the Wizard, Everett in the Scarecrow, Pete the tin man, Delmar the Lion, Homer the wicked witch (with his broom).....it shines a whole new light on this wonderfully layered movie!
