Personally, I did not made up my mind about this film the moment when the lights came on at the end of the film. As I write, I can't even decide on a grade or a rating.
To me, the movie was great until about the final scene or so. That tends to be a popular observation around here in this forum. Where I differ from many who are all bitchy about the ending, I haven't deemed the ending 'bad' as many have.
It's too easy to just call it "horrible" and feel like the whole movie was a big waste because of it. I didn't start booing as other audience members did. Even though I didn't understand the point, I figured that there was a point to why they ended the film as they did and when they did. While there probably was one, I feel that it's a hard ending to digest while sitting in the theater and watching the credits start to roll when you weren't expecting them for at least another scene or more.
I really enjoyed this film up until that particular scene. The acting was top-notch and the character development was great.
Pardon me for not having the character's name on hand, but the main bad guy was one of the best I have ever seen in a film. He reminded me of Dracula in a way. There is nothing redeemable about his actions, yet he is magnetic and wholly intriguing. You want to understand him, but you can't. When he enters a scene, he owns it. You fear what he will do, but you can't wait to see him do it. You want to almost like him, but you can't -- yet you do in the way that you love the many great villains in the history of cinema.
I will continue to read about this film to understand it better. It may help me firm up my feelings about "No Country". Eventually, I will get a chance to watch it again on DVD and I will have a more keen ear towards every line of dialog in this film.
This movie is way too good to be disliked because of its ending.
