    That movie is weirder than you AF! Where've you been? Missed ya!

    I hate No Country For Old Men. I saw that and There Will Be Blood within a week or so of each other when they came out year before last, and they killed my interest in cinema. Seriously, with my Cineworld card, I was sometimes seeing five or six films a week up until them two. I haven't seen that many films since. I don't think I've ever been so bored. It felt like torture. I think they psycologically damaged me.

    What No Country's about, though? I think it's supposed to be an artistic metaphor for the inescapable encroachment of death.

    I actually thought it was quite interesting until the end, then interest changed to confusion and angermentation (so angry that a new word had to be created!)

    Might as well been about smurfs, would have made just as much sense! I thought it was a good film too...until the ending. There was just no closure!

    yeah, the end is like they run out of budget or the actors walked off the set. Great film for the first 3/4s

    The ending is brilliant in No Country For Old Men. Here an explanation from imdb.



    Or they just kept the same ending from the book it was based on.

    That what is so good about the ending is that it doesn'y play to genre expectations and allows the viewer to questions to what happens.

    each to their own. Personally, I prefer my films to show me an ending, not for me to make one up myself

    Well said, its surprising how many people need stories to have a nice neat ending, life isn't like that and cinema should attempt to reflect that

    The film is very loyal to the book and the ending is that in the book so.........
