The Friday Film – No Country for Old Men


Perhaps one of the Coen’s most mainstream films, No Country for Old Men is a mad, tense rampage. I think it’s a pretty great example of how good Javier Bardem can be, which is a shame as he’s often in things I have no interest in seeing…

He’s even signed up to be in an Aronofsky project next year, my number one worst director. Come on Ethan and Joel – offer him another part!

When a man stumbles on a bloody crime scene, a pickup truck loaded with heroin and two million dollars in cash, his decision to take the money sets off an unstoppable chain reaction of violence. As an enigmatic killer who determines the fate of his victims with the flip of a coin sets out in pursuit of Moss, the disillusioned Sheriff Bell struggles to contain the rapidly escalating violence that seems to be consuming his once-peaceful Lone Star State town. Miramax
