The suspense is killer. Hitchcock would be sick with jealousy.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

No Country for Old Men is wide and dusty and terribly bleak. It's beautifully photographed and assembled, with great performances from its lead players and a number of welcome appearances by actors we haven't seen enough of lately.

Javier Bardem makes for a terrifying villain. He looks physically corrupt but seems every bit as relentless as the Terminator. He's also believably, psychotically human.

The Coens imbue this simple tale with their trademark quirkiness and wry humour.

I have never been so frustrated with a movie as I was with No Country for Old Men. I hope I never am again.
February 22, 2015
Death always gets the last laugh -- and what makes the Coens so remarkable is how they dare to cackle at the punch lines.
February 22, 2015
Morose vagueness will get No Country for Old Men called a classic, instead of what it is: an often effective but pompous grindhouser. Its pretensions are so big, you couldn't fit them in Texas.

I love this film.

Only the Coen brothers could make a film so impressively brutal and yet so understated as this. It helps that the set-up is so fiendishly simple. Blood simple, you might say.

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.

Just as the movie is beginning to conform to genre expectations (like The Treasure of the Sierra Madre meets Fargo), the Coens have the guts, and indeed the smarts, to pull it in an entirely different direction.
February 22, 2015
Haunting, hard- bitten and absurdly involving.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
February 22, 2015
Spanish actor Javier Bardem should leave audiences gasping with his stone-cold performance in the blood-spattered saga No Country For Old Men.

The movie rarely loses its grip and is a remarkable accomplishment.

The Coen brothers' No Country for Old Men is a rare example of a too-faithful adaptation of a novel, one that stubbornly refuses to explore and expound upon what the text readily provides.
January 22, 2014
It's been a long time since Joel and Ethan Coen took themselves this seriously. Perhaps since 1991's Barton Fink. The result is suspenseful and uncompromising.
January 22, 2014
The cinematic American West is vast enough for us to fill with our imaginations, taking a simple shadow play and transforming it into an eternal campfire tale.

Hallelujah! Men is so good it takes your breath away, even when you're not holding it during the scary parts.

No Country for Old Men is a great Texas film. It is great unequivocally, but Lone Star pride is a rare opportunity in Hollywood.
January 2, 2013
Cormac McCarthy's amazing novel was blessed with a usually impossible faithful adaption that translated the power of the words and weaved them into cinema.
