After the portentous No Country for Old Men, Joel and Ethan Coen return to their trademark brand of cruel, misanthropic farce, and for dark laughs and hurtling narrative momentum this spy caper is their best work since Fargo.
Sorry if this is off topic, but in what way was No Country portentous?

Look up the word in the dictionary, I don't think it means what you think it means, unless you disagree with the praise.

No Country was very portentous... My favorite movie of the past few years. Burn After Reading was a lot of fun though :)

Did you see this movie?

Totally agree with this reviewer.
Didn't see No Country, thinking I was not up for another portentous movie.
Of the 19 Coen brother movies listed at RT, I've only seen about 5 or 6. All the one's I watched were of the cruel, misanthropic farce genre and way fun to watch. (Raising Arizona, Big Lebowski, Fargo) Scorcese's After Hours was great also.
