This is the Coen Brothers' finest work. Based on the novel by Southern writer Cormac McCarthy, this is an instant American film classic that should be talked about and studied for decades to come.

The story involves Mexican drug money, a Vietnam War veteran who finds it, an elderly Sheriff who's about to retire, a bounty hunter who thinks he can beat the odds, and a psychotic killer with a cattlegun, a sociopath the like of which you haven't seen on the screen since Hannibal Lechter. Underneath its harsh realism set in a small Texas town, the film paints a mournful portrait of America in the process of change with a sadness about the passing of a more innocent time, a theme reminiscent of the films of Sam Peckinpah. The film's acting, from every lead player to the smallest character walk-on, is perfection itself, but it is the portrait of killer Anton Chigurh by Javier Bardem that should live forever in film history. The film's composition of shots and timing of its editing is the finest case study in cinematic precision since the great works of Alfred Hitchcock (for example, just watch the tension created by the crinkling of the slowly unfolding candy wrapper).

The most controversial part of the film is its last fifteen minutes, a conclusion that leaves most audiences dissatisfied, but there is something special going on here, and the Coen Brothers know what they're doing. If you invest some time thinking about it, and perhaps see the film again, you might experience a small epiphany and discover that the Coen Brothers have pulled a kind of alienation trick and refocused the film as a morality tale about the nature of evil. In that sense, the resolution can be seen as perfect. What you will be left with are many questions. But I can only tell you to see this masterpiece, one of the great films the new century has given us, and know exactly what great provocative cinematic art is all about.

I think (though I don't want to speak for anybody else) that the main reason some people don't like this movie is because it defies traditional moral and movie logic - there really is no moral compass here. What happens to every character is almost totally random, good deeds often results in terrible consequences and and bad deeds can go ahead unhindered - in this sense it is much truer to life, but it makes disturbing cinema where we are so conditioned to see heroes be pushed to their limits but ultimately triumph and evil doers be punished by those who suffered most at their hands. Themes of chance and determination/fate and the crossing over of unavoidable lines of force or action are the themes of this film it seems - made most vivid in the coin toss scene with the shop assistant.

The abrupt ending threw me for a loop the first time as well - annoyed me and frustrated me.... but hell it also made me think about what I'd seen and that's something not many movies do - sending you off with a friendly cinematic, cathartic pat on the back. And the more I thought about it the more it seemed right, to tie everything up neatly at the end would undermine the very idea of movie itself.

Be prepared to think about it a bit.

I normally hate slow films. If I say that a film is ‘slow’ then I normally mean that I’m completely bored with it. Or, if it’s deliberately slow then it’s probably just being pretentious with ideas above its station. ‘No Country For Old Men’ is slow. And I really enjoyed it.

It’s a little hard to describe. I guess the basic plot is that Josh Brolin finds a suitcase of money in the middle of a drug deal gone wrong and decides to keep it. The only problem is that there’s a complete psychopath on his trail who will stop at nothing to recover what is his (think ‘The Terminator’ but with a worse haircut). Tommy Lee Jones plays the local Sherriff on both their trails and, using the Terminator analogy, it’s just a question of which one gets to Brolin first.

It’s quite a long film with minimal dialogue. A lot of the time you’re just watching the character as he goes about his (ill-gotten) business. When there is dialogue it’s that kind of ‘Tarantino-esque’ rambling monologue which makes you wonder where it’s going and is supposed to heighten the tension and show us important information regarding the character talking. This can sometimes get annoying, but, again, it works here.

Yes, it’s slow, but it’s brilliant (and nasty). Be prepared for some pretty grim and dark moments thrown in there and it certainly isn’t a ‘feel good’ epic, but if you’re in the mood for something a little less ‘action-packed’ than your average Hollywood blockbuster (and a lot nastier) then definitely give this one a go. It won’t be for everyone and your current mood will probably dictate how you feel towards it afterwards.

I'm generally a big fan of the Coen brothers and the motion pictures that they create, and this is a great example of why. I consider this to be one of the best films by Coen brothers. On top of that, I consider this to be one of the best films ever made. The story revolves around the main character called Llewellyn Moss (Josh Brolin) as he stumbles across abandoned pickup trucks, multiple dead bodies and two million dollars in cash just sitting in a briefcase, just waiting to be taken. Without thinking things through, Llewellyn takes the money and makes a run for it, however he does not know that he is being hunted by an unstoppable force that goes by the name of Anton Chigurgh (Javier Bardem) Whilst Sheriff Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) is chasing Anton.

From there we have a story that is intense, brutal and surprisingly thought provoking. As a whole though, this is an action movie more than it is a drama and naturally if a drama has action I would prefer it if it focused on the drama instead of the violence because for me the story is what's most important. Surprisingly though, the large amount of action doesn't take away from the drama element of the film.

The performances by the actors and actresses are actually chilling because they are so good, especially the performance from Javier Bardem. Bardem takes on a role that is truly haunting and it makes you feel like you always want to be in his good books. There are multiple scenes that with Anton in them that truly stand out and send chills down my spine and truly make you feel scared.
