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.

The Coen brothers should be given an award simply for the perfectionism of their casting, in virtually every film they make.
There are at least three performances in this darkly obsessive film that are the equal of any from the last few years.
Josh Brolin is exactly right as the rough-round-the-edges `good guy` Llewelyn Moss, who finds a pile of money he intends to hang on to.
Javier Bardem is exceptional as the very bad guy Anton Chigurh, an amoral psycopath who nevertheless lives by his own perverse `moral code`, who sports an evil haircut and a wide scary mirthless smile. This actor was (as the interviews in the excellent Extras menu tell us) awed and delighted to work with the Coens, and his gratitude shows, in spades. It`s a great contemporary study in deadly-smooth, grimly droll reptilian malignity.
The great Tommy Lee Jones - who, as actor or director, can do no wrong in my book - is the grizzled `good cop` Tom Bell, who`s seen it all, and is nearing a retirement he appears to both long for and dread.
But there`s also Scotland`s own Kelly MacDonald as Brolin`s sweet but quietly tough wife Carla, executing a perfect Texan accent, and Woody Harrelson as a slightly slimy hitman who is, as it were, hoist by his own petard.
It`s good to see the wonderful Barry Corbin (so good in cult TV series Northern Exposure) as Tom`s equally grizzled brother Ellis, and Tess Harper as Tom`s good-hearted wife.
This is a film to watch more than once or twice, if only for its terrific set of performances, as well as its superb overall design, moody photography, and typically effective script by the Coen brothers, from Cormac McCarthy`s novel. (Incidentally, surely it`s about time for Cormac`s Nobel Prize...?

I did not like it the first time. Now I think it is a very good film with a overall sense of destiny and hopeless sense of loss. Loss of humanity, god, values. The silent scenes, the silent characters, the sometimes mechanical and almost unreal actions and situations, now they all seem to me not like Coen having lost originality and just repeating themselves (as it will happen after this film, anyway, expect for A Serious Man), but like an inevitable approach to reduce in 2 hours and convey all the density of the book.
And I also appreciate much more the ellipse right before the ending, when the story takes another direction, as well as I like the way all the characters leave the scene at the end of the story, each one like they are nothing but puppets in the absurd theatre of life. And I also loved the very ending, where there is no ending, no mainstream and reassuring conclusion.
Unfortunately Coen will just copy themselves after that, continuing to follow the same cold approach and strategy, but with nothing else or more to say, thus resulting in dry and pointless new films, no more just essential, but just essentially boring.
Blu ray is fantastic both for audio and video quality (the photography is remarkable)

This Oscar winning film is based on an unusual 2005 novel by American author Cormac McCarthy and is very faithful to the book. Beautifully brought to life with stunning cinematography, inventive direction, some great set pieces and, for the most part, realistic acting. I say for the most part because the main villain, played by Javier Bardem (who also won an Oscar) is like a malevolent phantom; a creature of pure evil, more like the Devil than a person. His nightmarish performance is the best part of the movie - every time he is on screen he chills and fascinates in equal measure.

The film is a modern day Western, set in 1980 on the US / Mexico border with a plot so simple it's not worth mentioning. The action is viewed from the perspectives of the three main characters; the psycho Bardem, a world-weary (and philosophising) Sheriff played by Tommy Lee Jones, and a man who gets himself into a heap of trouble, played by Josh Brolin. Although told at a slow pace, the first 2 thirds are very compelling, mostly due to the well-worked set-pieces and the ever-menacing presence of Bardem. The movie does however become ever more strange with a somewhat modernist attention to detail on small things, while the big events get glossed over. By the final third, it has become so interiorised that the action is threatening to cease at any moment. And in fact that's what it does. The film ends when you least expect it to. This has infuriated and baffled many, but, in restrospect, I feel it finishes at just the right time. It's in keeping with the real themes of the movie, which are not spelled out, (and it wouldn't be right for me to spell them out either).

If I had to compare this film to other Coen Bros films; the first two thirds are like Blood Simple and Fargo whereas the final third is more like Barton Fink (i.e a bad dream!). Not everybody's cup of tea, for sure, but like I said, I loved it.
