The ultimate crime film. And also the ultimate thriller.

No Country for Old Men is a masterpiece!

E dopo aver visto e rivisto praticamente tutta la filmografia dei Coen, mi sono fermato nuovamente su quello che si può considerare come uno dei loro più grandi capolavori. "Non è un paese per vecchi" è crudo, forte, coinvolgente ed estremamente complesso. Bisogna seguirlo con grande attenzione e sicuramente rivederlo due o più volte per capirlo fino in fondo. Una volta raggiunto il giusto livello di consapevolezza, si riesce ad apprezzare il film per quello che è, un capolavoro inestimabile, tra i migliori film del decennio. Questa volta i Coen non solo ci hanno trascinato dentro la sconvolgente realtà del confine messicano durante gli anni '80, ci hanno anche trascinato dentro la mente folle e criminale di uno dei migliori personaggi che io abbia mai visto, sorretto da un'interpretazione semplicemente ai limiti del possibile. La pellicola viene sorretta anche da effetti sonori estremamente accurati e precisi, che sostituiscono una colonna sonora che in questo caso è totalmente assente, rendendo l'esperienza più pragmatica e vicina dal punto di vista emotivo. Non a caso il film è una costante in tutte le liste dei migliori film del post 2000, semplicemente un capolavoro senza tempo che conferma il posto dei Coen nell'Olimpo del registi.

Great fantastic phenomenal movie directed by the Coen brothers and starring the likes of the guy from the new pirates of the carribean movie , agent K and little agent K. This movie is really really interesting, it's not entertain because of the dark stuff in this movie like murder. This movie deserves all the oscars and thank you coen brothers to writing and directing this movie.

If Alfred Hitchcock made a modern film, this is it. A nail biting, carefully constructed quiet thriller with easy flowing dialogue and excellent performances, No Country For Old Men is a modern thriller masterpiece.

Easily one of the Coens' best.

Javier Bardem is frighteningly good.

Dirty, thouth-provoking, ambicious, committed, sarcastic and horrifically tense, "No Country for Old Men" is The Coen Brothers at the top of their game. Not only it is the best movie of their entire carrer, but also one of the best movies ever made, a hell of a masterpiece. It has on Javier Bardem perfromance one of his best filmmaking "weapons", a brutal and scary portrayal of a very strange man, who is constantly unadaptable in the environment in which he is. Because of the themes this movie approaches, it deserves to be placed on the Top of the Coen Brothers filmography. "No Country for Old Men" is visually beautiful and striking, masterfully acted and sure an instant classic, if it is not one already.

I don't understand the hype around this movie
August 23, 2017
I loved the filming methods, angles and character progression.
It was wise to let Javier Bardem play it the way he did. Added that sense hyper tension that those scenes need.
Generally, the lack of music to determine the feelings of the scene were replaced by the emoting of the actors. Loved it!

8/18/2017 (2): A decent movie with a good cast. Definitely a drama and could have used more action. What there was was good though. The ending was disappointing and very anticlimactic. Wouldn't watch again.

This haunting and eerie tale about a stone-cold psychopath on a manhunt for the 'misunderstood' protagonist is executed perfectly. Exquisite storytelling along with outstanding acting gives the audience a reason to keep watching even with its lengthy runtime. And although some moments seem lacking importance to the plot, the audience remains on the edge of their seats due to the Coens' brothers excellent manipulation of suspense.

a great film about a psycho killer who loves to kill

But at the same time it harkens back to the roots of cinema, recalling Hitchcock and Leone, and Welles's Touch of Evil, as a combination of the best of noir and westerns. There are so many exceptional shots and lighting, so much depth to the perception of the characters through the mis-en-scene, so much tension, that through this it's all up to the actors to make or break the near-perfection that is the McCarthy source. Bardem embodies Anton like no other could: you can't even look into his eyes without wincing, often steel-cold and horrifically professional (to what profession... who can say?). Josh Brolin and Tommy Lee Jones are also fantastic; we see Brolin often in the midst of an action scene, a moment of 'save-your-life' going on, and one can finally see an actor of his caliber completely breaking out in a role that doesn't require him to ever totally "emote". Jones, on the other hand, gives a compassionate turn in a film that's about the struggles of desperate men in a land without law and order. He's gone through so much that it comes out completely in his voice and eyes, sorrowful but holding back, and he reaches a level of connection with the character that makes the Fugitive look like simpleton TV. Kelly McDonald, who plays Lleland's wife, is also excellent when called upon, especially in a crucial scene later in the film.

One of the best movies I have seen, simply amazing

A great plot fused with great acting and direction leads to one of the best movies I've ever seen in my life!

This may very well be the best movie of 2007. It's a great movie, and what amazes me so much is that the plot is actually pretty simple, but it's the performances, which are great, and the whole structure is what makes the pic so memorable. The Coen brothers are known for making terrific movie, but this one may just be there best. Recommended !!
