ON THE ROAD: CINEMATIC JOURNEYS
Double Feature!
SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS / O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?
SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS
1941, Universal, 98 min, Dir: Preston Sturges

Director Preston Sturges’ most acclaimed comedy is something like a social-realist movie with a wicked sense of humor. Successful Hollywood director Joel McCrea grows weary of making "entertainment pictures" and decides to hit the road disguised as a hobo to research his first "serious" film. A roller-coaster of mishaps and coincidences lands him on a chain gang, as well as in the arms of lovely Veronica Lake, before he learns what audiences crave the most.


O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?
2000, Buena Vista Pictures, 106 min, USA, Dir: Joel Cohen

Taking much of its inspiration from Homer’s The Odyssey, this Coen brothers comedy stars George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson as escaped convicts in Depression-era Mississippi. On a wild goose chase for loot from a previous crime, the trio encounter bluesmen, bank robbers, Bible thumpers and politicos, and become unlikely hitmakers as the “Soggy Bottom Boys” (in real life, the film’s bluegrass-filled soundtrack topped charts and won three Grammys). Costarring John Goodman. The title is taken from the social-realist film-within-a-film Joel McCrea's character wants to make in Preston Sturges' SULLIVAN'S TRAVELS!
