Video Fridays: O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Referenced in my post from this morning, I was thrilled to find the following awesome scene from the Coen Brothers’ 2000 film, O Brother, Where Art Thou?.

I LOVED this movie a lot for a variety of reasons: the usual Coen Brothers twisted humor, the old-timey soundtrack, and incredible performances all around, especially George Clooney who had never been funnier before and has never been again since.

Don’t get me wrong, he’s a fine actor, but most of the time he just seems to play variations of himself. As Ulysses Everett McGill, however, he mostly put himself aside and thoroughly became a different, goofier, more animated (particularly in terms of facial expressions) actor than I, to that point, had ever thought he could be.

Anyway, here’s the aforementioned gopher scene, with a bonus mass baptism thrown in to boot.

Happy Weekend, everyone!
