There ain’t No Country for Old Men

No Country for Old MenI don’t even know where to start with this film. I spent all day yesterday (after seeing a 1:35pm matinée) thinking about whether I liked No Country for Old Men or not.

With all the rave reviews, both from critics and friends, I had unusually high expectations for the latest Coen Brothers’ movie. Without hesitation, I can definitely see why it has garnered so much positive attention – the acting, casting, and cinematography are all excellent.

What else do I want, you ask? Well…I’m never 100% sure that I can get on board with the Coens’ requisite underlying moral of the story . This is my only real fundamental problem. I won’t say anything more (as the title does enough by itself), but in the end, the film is captivating and extremely well put together.
