No Country For Old Men

No country I went to a movie theater tonight and saw No Country For Old Men staring Tommy Lee Jones Woody Harelson, Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem as the psycho killer (right).

The movie is about Brolin’s character who comes upon a suitcase full of cash which was from a botched drug deal in the desert.  And the guy who tries to catch up with him and the cash.  The movie is directed by the Coen brothers, Joel and Ethan, who brought us movies like Oh Brother, Where Art Thou,  The Big Lebowski  and  Fargo.  The photography and sound are spectacular.  The acting is also first rate.   I didn’t care for the ending.. if you want to call it that, but it’s one of those movies that you will talk about afterwards.  

It would have been perfect with a different ending… but I guess it’s like life… no real ending… unless you were on the other end of that gun of his.

The ending was true to the book.

I agree with Jonco's opinion.

I watched this movie and thought it was actually pretty incredible- the acting was superb- hardly any dialogue throughout most of the film- and still it was "on the edge of your seat" exciting.

I agree that the ending should have been different, book or no book- the director could have changed the ending. It happens all of the time in Hollywood.

This movie was really good for so long- then it seemed to come to a screeching halt- I still recommend it though!
