March 1, 2018
It's a smart film and pure Coen. It has a point, though some may contest it. But it's not a must-see film for everyone so if you are a Coen fan, don't take your grandmother. She will say it sucks.

The Coen Brothers are back with a triumphant return to form.
February 28, 2018
No Country for Old Men is a great return to form for the Coens. Even if you've never been a big fan of theirs, it's a film you should see if you like a good thriller.
February 28, 2018
The film clearly and finally represents the mainstream success that has long eluded the Coens. Longtime fans, fear not: This is no sell-out. There is still plenty of what the Coens do best.

No Country for Old Men is imbued with a dry, minimalist, almost crude style and forms a dark and violent universe that reveals the horror and moral rot rooted in American society. [Full Review in Spanish]

... a perfect match of story and storyteller.

The road to doom is paved with blood and bad decisions in one of the best pictures of 2007.

There's no denying the movie and this character's power to shake you. The implacable Chigurh dominates the proceedings like no other Coen villain before him.
May 17, 2015
One of the most thoughtful and startling snapshots of the human condition of the last ten years.

February 22, 2015
Played by Spanish actor Javier Bardem, Chigurh is the most original bogeyman to bloody up the screen in a while.
February 22, 2015
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
Beautifully photographed (by Roger Deakins) in leathery Texas tans, No Country For Old Men is filled with twists and surprises, hypnotically engaging from its very first scene.
February 22, 2015
From brutal start to ironic finish the movie's tension is constant.
February 22, 2015
As much as the film is about Bardem's even-keeled determination... it's also about Tommy Lee Jones' brilliantly characterized Texas sheriff, who, faced with a trail of blood like he's never seen, wonders if he's still a match for a changing world.

No Country for Old Men is an action film both measured and grave, opening as a Jim Thompson-esque crime saga set on the Texan sands, but as it moves along the film acquires an allegorical depth.

February 22, 2015
This magnificent film represents the best work the Coen Brothers have done since Fargo. Like that classic this is a cold-blooded thriller with a darkly humorous edge.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 22, 2015
It's not a film that asks to be either liked or disliked. It just is, branding itself on to you like a heated iron.
February 22, 2015
The Coens' unconventional editing techniques convey a sense of setting and urgency few filmmakers could accomplish (or even would brave trying).
