Film Review: No Country For Old Men

leave a comment »

This is a short review I quickly punched out a while back so thought I would post it to get me started.

No Country for Old Men packs a punch. No, more accurately, it takes you the whole 12 rounds, delivering blow after blow but leaving you conscious enough at the end to know that you have taken a beating. Mexican drug deals, rough dirty landscapes, gunfights, a shotgun with a silencer, Tommy Lee Jones at his craggy best, more gunfights and a man-monster of violence in the form of Anton Chigurh, who just can not be stopped. What more do you need in a film?  Well how about career-defining performances from the three leads, a fantastic supporting cast, original witty dialogue and a powerful twisting plot. All superbly helmed by the Coen brothers who prove again that they really do know how to spin a ripping good yarn. Go see this film, or the Coen’s might have to set Anton on your trail.
