With NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, the Coen Brothers have found a perfect match in Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy. Their adaptation of McCarthy's praised novel is a staggering masterpiece. In this almost impossibly faithful adaptation, the film takes place in a small Texas border town in 1980. Sheriff Bell (a never-been-better Tommy Lee Jones) has ruled the land for years without the use of a gun, but a new brand of reckless lawlessness has taken over his town. Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) is an innocent Everyman with a devoted wife, Carla Jean (Kelly Macdonald), but when he stumbles across a drug deal gone deadly and finds two million dollars, he's determined to keep it for himself. There's only one problem. He's being pursued by one of the most amoral, evil psychopaths that the big screen has ever seen. Wearing an absurd haircut and brandishing a pressurized weapon that's used to murder cattle, Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) creeps forward on his mission to track Moss down and return the money to its rightful owners to save his own skin. As the tension mounts, the body count begins to rise, confirming Sheriff Bell's inability to battle this new wave of modern brutality.


The most striking thing about the Coen Brothers' thriller is their masterly use of silence to create an almost unbearable level of tension. Cinematographer Roger Deakins is once again at the top of his game, beautifully capturing this stark and lonely world. The well-rounded cast is clearly excited to be a part of such a stellar production--particularly Bardem, whose Chigurh is a freakishly mysterious monster, and is certain to haunt viewers long after the final credit has rolled. In a career filled with striking achievements, this might very well be the Coen Brothers' finest. It is filmmaking at its best.

there's a difference between watching a film and understanding a film

Great movie - and I absolutely loved the ending, a proper ending, one to make you think, if you can think.

HOT!!!



(Just to add, the worst-ending-in-a-film-ever honour has to belong to 'The Mist', surely?)

Great film, scorching at this price

Thought this film was rubbish, I want my 122 minutes back.

The ending is uncompromising that's for sure. Don't watch this film if you can't 'move on' from the same old expectations that we bring with us to a film. The directors seemed to be asking us to grow up in what we can handle. Excellent price, hot.

I hadn't that feeling about an ending since 'Blair Witch' .....

Agree with Uncle Potter that this had a bad ending! And yes, I do understand films, and look beyond the obvious, it still seemed unfinished to me... Probably worth £2.99 though for the first two-thirds and the good character performances.
#11
instore?! great film, great direction, great ending as far as i am concerned... anything that poses questions to the watcher is a winner for me
#12
:thumbsup:
#13
Superb film heat added..
#14
I'm not afraid or ashamed to say I thought the ending was lacking somewhat. I've also got the bottle to say that a few people I know say things like "It made me think...." and then end their statements in much the same way as the film ends or just not a clue and trying to be a smart ah's!

If you think the film feels unfinished then I'm afraid you didn't understand it. I would explain here but I dont wan't to spoil it for people who haven't seen it.

Regardless of the ending i thought it was well over rated . Also the amount of oscars heaped on it when you compare it to other films that have missed out over the years was way over the top. I love several of the Coen brothers films namely Blood Simple , Raising Arizona and Fargo but i cant bring myself to watch this again.
#17
One of my favourite ever films.
#18
I might go and watch this now!
#19
did we find out if this is instore too?!

Nearly an amazing film but ends up being self indulgent & pretentious

No Country for Old Men:
Not a great film.
United 93 was on TV last night.
Wow, now that was an amazing film.

Watched the film, it was brilliant, and the end did throw me - it is American after all so you expect a stupid Hollywood ending.

So, I bought the book to understand it more. I read it almost non-stop and saw that it all really did make sense, and it was a good and faithful end to the film. But Tommy Lee Jones' accent will throw UK audiences who won't hear all he says. (hence the book idea)

The title sums the whole story up, in that times were changing for the worse, and it really was no country for old men not used to the increasing violence and decreasing morality.

BTW: This film is the closest I have ever seen to the novel. I can pick one or two things wrong in the film, but not much. (namely mobile phones being that small in 1980)

The coin-toss scenes are chilling:
"What's the most you ever lost on a coin toss?"
*tosses coin*
"Call it."
"But I need to know what I stand to win?"
"Everything. Just call it."


Edit: United 93 is a great film too, agreed on that part of your statement, stapsell, but these two films are worlds apart.
#23
If you've not watched this, PLEASE don't waste your tine. One of the worst, most over-hyped films I have had the misfortune to see. People seem to be afraid to say they didn't like it because it has won a few oscars.

i have to agree. worst film ever. dont waste your money.voted cold. awful film.

I know voting cold on stuff we don't personally like is hard to resist but ain't the whole voting hot and cold thing about whether the deal is a good one or not, not about our personal tastes. Like that George Clooney film 'Solaris', posted on here yesterday, I think. Rubbish as far I'm concerned but yeah a good price and worth posting for fans of the movie. Just my 2p's worth, I'll shrurrup now.
