This movie was waaaaay to creepy for me. Also, it drove me nuts that
the incredibly creepy bad guy had no motive for murdering all the extra people
and that
you never find out if the wife lives or not.

Yea I thought this was a really good movie. I'm glad my brother made me go see this one.

My favorite film of the year. Bleak with a very thin build...arguably my favorite Coen project.

I thought it was alright, but nowhere near the hype it got.

The first show spoiler gives one an indication of that characters absolute insanity, and is what makes him so creepy. It was just also completely badass.

As for the second spoiler, I think it was made rather clear that there was a killing. Not everything has to be spelled out for you. Given show spoiler number one, it should be obvious the plan of action that he would choose.

spoiler 1: I think figuring that out was part of the point. It was some kind of philosophical BS.
spoiler 2: She didn't.

I don't mean "BS" as in dumb or wrong. It was psychotic.

Pretty much every bit as amazing as every critic said it was. The action is intense and gripping, and the storyline is very unorthodox. It's probably one of the few movies I've ever seen that had a suprise ending, not a *twist* ending, but an ending actually different than traditional Hollywood allows.

Great acting from Javier Bardem!
The movie wouldn't have been as good if somebody else played that role.

Javier was the killer for those that don't know.

Bleak and depressing to begin with, and even more bleak and depressing by the end - but utterly compelling all the way.

'No Country For Old Men' is a stunning piece of cinema, filled with many classic moments and all-round wonderful performances.

I really wanted to see this, and recently I've been enjoying Cormac MacCarthy's novel Blood Meridian, which probably has a similar tone (McCarthy wrote the story for NCFOM). But, it only stayed in the theater here for a week before getting moved out for garbage like Alvin and the Chipmunks.

How did the Mexicans know where the wife and her mom were? I know the Mexicans followed them from the mom's house, posing as helpful, but how did they know where to start looking?

My brother saw this movie tonight and he said that it was really boring.

Wise: I imagine they easily found out who is wife was, after they lost track of him everyone went after her, it's easy enough to find an old woman not trying to hide from professional killers, and from their she just handed everything over to them on a plate at the airport.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 12/29/07 - 2:46:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
So how did they find her then? And while we're at it, how did Woody Harrelson find Moss at the hospital?
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 12/29/07 - 12:40:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
They simply found her, first they could easily track down his wife because she's just a listed person who has a legal residence, after they searched his house they probably figured out that she would try to visit the nearest relative, being the mother. It's easy enough that they found her mothers house, followed them to the airport, and then got the hotel information from them. I imagine the Mexicans did the same thing that Anton and the Sheriff did, first they went to his house, they found call records, and then they either found out or easily assumed that she ran to her mothers for safety. The Harrelson thing seems a bit harder to answer except to say that he must be really good at his job, just not as good as Anton. Maybe the book is more detailed in the process he used to track him down though.

I think the Harrelson and Bardem characters were supposed to have a mysterious mystique about them, and that's why their tracking processes weren't more exposed. Same with the Mexicans finding Brolin in the hotel. All of those incidents beg the question of how, but the lack of any answers sort of make the questions rhetorical, like there is some cynical, bleak inevitability to it all.

If I can accept Bardem's page boy hairdo, I guess I should probably just roll with the rest of the story.

Another thing: This movie depressed me a little bit because everyone in the film was ready to die or kill, or both, for the money. Fargo had similar characters, but the heroine gave that speech in the end, a kind of moral sidebar, about how murder isn't worth "a little bit of money." That message was missing here, though. It was all so desperate and bleak, as if men just live in the world struggling to dominate and horde, and then die a hopeless death. That dream at the end sealed the sad little deal. I guess because I'm trying to pursue a public interest career, I felt naive, almost foolish. Like there's a dark undercurrent to life that I've been sheltered from and will find out about soon.

Ew I don't know why I'm talking about this.

Wise: I totally understand what you mean, Cormac McCarthy is always so depressing and bleak, and all throughout the movie I hated how greed led people to just throw away human life.

I mean, why didn't Lluwellen just grab 20 grand from the pack and run away? I know that would render the point worthless but it's the thought I always have when I see people topple over their own greed, it's like drug dealers who don't quite even when they have made 10 million dollars. I mean, why not just keep enough instead of risking everything over an amount of wealth you truly will never need? If it was me, I would have swiped a few grand and left it alone, no one would go after you for stealing 50 grand from 2 million when the deal goes that awry.

14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 1/7/08 - 3:32:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know, Cap - I must admit that if I had of been Moss, I would have been very strongly tempted to take the whole $2 million and try to live happily ever after.

*thinks for a moment*

Then again, I would of had the likes of Anton Chigurh coming after me.

*recalls one of his favourite scenes from the film*

Not to mention that I'd never feel comfortable again about taking a swim.

14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 1/7/08 - 4:22:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
I just don't understand greed taking over the survival instinct. 20 grand is pretty freaking awesome, and no amount of money is worth risking *certain* death, why does a backwoods hillbilly need two million anyway?

Maybe he wanted to build a church
