THE WORD

leave a comment »

Here it comes once again: THE WORD.

The film No Country for Old Men has some awesome dialogue. Basically all the spoken word for the entire film showcases that unique wit from the Coen brothers, and again proved that Joel and Ethan write some of the best dialogue in cinema today. Much of it from No Country manages to be dark and funny at the same time. The following is from early on in the film when Josh Brolin’s character, Llewelyn Moss, is heading in the middle of the night back to the scene of a certain drug-deal gone wrong that is the catalyst for the story when his wife asks him what he is doing:

 

Carla Jean: Llweleyn?

Llewelyn: Yeah?

Carla Jean: What are you doing baby?

Llewelyn: I’m going out.

Carla Jean: Going where?

Llewelyn: There’s something I forgot to do, but I’ll be back.

Carla Jean: And what are you going to do?

Llewelyn: I’m fixin’ to do something dumber than hell, but I’m going anyways.

Llewelyn: If I don’t come back, tell mother I love her.

Carla Jean: You’re mother’s dead Llewelyn.

Llewelyn: Well then I’ll tell her myself.

 

From the film No Country for Old Men, directed by and screenplay by Joel & Ethan Coen.
