Why to Watch - No Country For Old Men

Yes, another Coen Brothers movie but this time around they completely ignored their trademark comedic style and instead took a serious, intense approach for this crime/thriller flick that is honestly beyond incredible. Big fan of this one.



No Country for Old Men (2007) Crime, Drama, Thriller | 122min | November 21, 2007 (United States) 8.1
Director: Ethan Coen, Joel CoenWriter: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, Cormac McCarthyStars: Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh BrolinSummary: In rural Texas, welder and hunter Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) discovers the remains of several drug runners who have all killed each other in an exchange gone violently wrong. Rather than report the discovery to the police, Moss decides to simply take the two million dollars present for himself. This puts the psychopathic killer, Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), on his trail as he dispassionately murders nearly every rival, bystander and even employer in his pursuit of his quarry and the money. As Moss desperately attempts to keep one step ahead, the blood from this hunt begins to flow behind him with relentlessly growing intensity as Chigurh closes in. Meanwhile, the laconic Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) blithely oversees the investigation even as he struggles to face the sheer enormity of the crimes he is attempting to thwart. —Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)
