* WardensAreEvil: The Sheriff. While at the beginning he ''is'' in the right to hunt down Everett, Pete and Delmar (because of them being fugitives) he goes for overkill tactics like ''burning down a barn with them inside'', he insists that he answers to a higher law than man's (so he will just keep coming to matter what), and the moment he makes it clear that he will see them all hang even if they are now pardoned (and he will kill Tommy for no reason other than him being there with the fugitives), he crosses the MoralEventHorizon ''hard''. That he is a SatanicArchetype doesn't help any.

A 2000 comedy film written and directed by Creator/TheCoenBrothers, about three escaped prisoners in [[TheGreatDepression Depression-era]] [[DeepSouth Mississippi]] who go on a rollicking adventure in an attempt to reach the money buried by one of them in his back yard. They have only a short time to do this, though, as the backyard in question is in an area slated to be flooded by the damming activities of the Tennessee Valley Authority.

The story is (very) loosely [[TwiceToldTale based]] on Homer's ''Literature/TheOdyssey'', following [[MeaningfulName Ulysses]] Everett [=McGill=] (Creator/GeorgeClooney), Delmar O'Donnell (Creator/TimBlakeNelson), and Pete Hogwallop (John Turturro) as they meet, among others, a [[BlindSeer blind prophet]], sirens, the Cyclops and a gifted guitar player who "[[DealWithTheDevil sold his soul to the devil]]". Also during their journey, they record a hit song, rob a bank with George "Baby Face" Nelson, encounter the KKK, and inadvertently get mixed up in the state gubernatorial election. [[AwesomeMusic/{{Film}} It was noted for the tremendous success of its soundtrack]], most of which was recorded by Music/AlisonKraussAndUnionStation (Dan Tyminski provided Everett's singing voice) and other country-bluegrass acts.
