“I’m a Dapper Dan man!”
America relies on it’s past to make it’s present feel good and the rest of the world marvel at all the strange yet familiar quirks of the West. This here filum trades directly on that adventure into faded sepia.
Funny, sharply observed and with a cast and production crew that obviously trust each other so much that we get the best caricatures that 1930’s North American South has to offer.
Obviously a main character is the soundtrack and the way it’s integrated into the action in front of the camera. There’s no way you can watch this and think anything was thrown in at the last moment but there’s also nothing forced or clunky.
I’d watch again and again. Might even be good for kids as there’s so much happening.
Extras: Interviews with the cast and the Coen Brothers. Not too much on the background sets but quite a lot on the way people signed up for the script. Some oddities but not a lot. Disappointing although some gems.
Oh, brother, yes.
Watch if on TV?
Yes, ma’m, ah wood.
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Marry, if’n she’ll take me.
