No Country for Old Men
Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen
With only four more movies to go, it is hard to keep my focus on the remaining titles. Still, I will do my best to give each film the attention it deserves. Just know internally I am freaking out (but what else is new?).
While hunting in West Texas, Llewelyn Moss stumbles across the aftermath of a drug deal gone wrong. He finds one wounded man who is begging for water, several dead bodies, and two million dollars in a case. Moss takes the money, and surprisingly enough, his theft doesn't go unnoticed. He is pursued by Mexican drug dealers and Anton Chigurh, a hired sociopath with the world's dorkiest hair cut (and I thought I had secured that title when I got bangs in ninth grade). Sheriff Bell is hired to investigate, but he laments that he is too old for this shit. Well, I paraphrased.
I always gush over Coen Brothers films, and this entry will be no exception. This was a very exciting movie that featured one of the best movie villains in recent memory. Javier Bardem did such a good job of portraying someone who was truly soulless that I might be frightened to meet him in real life. The visuals were stunning and I thought the ending was absolutely brilliant.
This is going on my reading list. Soon I will have more free time...
Anton Chigurh's weapon, a captive bolt pistol, is commonly used to kill cows to minimize risk of flying bullets.
