Dany's RaaD Roundup

No Country for Old Men


There is so much to say about this film, but first things first. This is probably the best Coen Brothers film since their amazingly different one-two punch of Fargo (1996) then The Big Lebowski (1998). Don’t get me wrong, I loved the oft forgotten The Man Who Wasn’t There as well as the Coenization of The Oddessey, O Brother, Where Art Thou? but they were nowhere near as entertaining as the films these two brothers made during the mid-to-late 1990’s.

Javier Bardem is able to play one of the most creepy characters I’ve seen on screen, maybe since Anthony Hopkins mastered the role of Dr. Hannibal Lecter to became a movie icon in 1991. Josh Brolin creates a character that is a polar opposite to his most recent role in American Gangster. Even Jimmy James… err, Stephen Root, made an appearance in this film, albeit a small one, man I miss Newsradio.

This film is chock full of wonderfully shot scenes, interesting dialogue, tight editing and some of the most gruesome gunfights (other makeshift weapons are used too) this year. This film is 2 hours long and every minute is filled with something worth watching. Go see this film… What are you waiting for, GO! NOW! Put down that burrito and go already.
