  • The Coen Brothers are back with a triumphant return to form.

  • The lack of respect for the body, the sheer bloody aftermath depresses me. Yes, they may handle the killing with verve and ironic tension, but this is a Coen brothers film too far.

    January 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Played by Spanish actor Javier Bardem, Chigurh is the most original bogeyman to bloody up the screen in a while.

  • The last word on the modern-day western used to be Peckinpah's. No Country for Old Men is Peckinpah gone post-Peckinpah.

    February 22, 2015 | Full Review…
  • No Country for Old Men is a thoroughly compelling exercise in the cinema of suspense that proves the power of the old-school thriller remains undiminished.

    February 22, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • So, yes, you should probably see No Country for Old Men, even if it does bow out with a baffling little coda featuring an old timer's meditation on the fact that he's estranged from his father.

Audience Reviews for No Country for Old Men

  • Jul 31, 2016
    A masterpiece in almost every right, No Country for Old Men is a grim, dark and introspective look into the ideas of fate, coincidence and greed - all of which are brought beautifully to screen thanks to Roger Deakins' cinematography, amazing lead performances and the Coen's brothers fantastic direction.

    A very solid film that handles tension brilliantly. The Coen brothers truly know how to build a gloomy universe around quirky characters.

    No Country for Old Men is directed by the Joel and Ethan Coen and stars Josh Brolin as Llewelyn Moss, a hunter who stumbles upon two million in cash left from an apparent firefight. Moss is then on the run from a hitman (Javier Bardem) hired to take him down. Tommy Lee Jones plays Sheriff Bell, the sheriff of the country where this all takes place. This movie was very captivating right off the bat. Javier Bardem delivered an Academy Award-winning performance, and it shows; his creepy villainous ways are captivating to watch. Tommy Lee Jones also delivers a solid turn as the only true "good guy" of the movie, despite the terrible acting of his partner. The Coen Brothers always deliver from a cinematic standpoint, and this movie is no exception. Also, the ending, while probably frustrating to most, really stood out as the strong point of the movie. Unfortunately, this is just not an entertaining film. The dragging pace, absence of film score, and long periods of dialogue only made the movie feel longer than its two-hour run time. Josh Brolin's character is also one that is hard to cheer for. He is very cold and calculating for a non-criminal, making it hard to want him to escape from the hitman. While I didn't love this movie (and don't understand how it won Best Picture), I appreciate enough about it to say it's worth watching if you have the patience. While Westerns aren't really my thing, No Country for Old Men is fine. Final grade: B-

    "No Country for Old Men" is as much a riddle as any other Coen movie, something that appears very sleight from a plot perspective but nonetheless is filled to the brim with some sort of hidden meaning. If you (understandably) don't like this on-the-edge-of-pretention style, you can still find enough to enjoy due to powerful performances and some insane tension/violence.
