No Country for Old Men
Location: Redstone Theater
Dirs. Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. 2007, 122 mins. 35mm. With Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin. Cormac McCarthy’s novel of greed and revenge in the West Texas desert was adapted by the Coens into a near-flawless, Oscar-winning instant classic. Josh Brolin is the Vietnam vet who stumbles into a $2 million fortune in the wake of a drug deal gone bad—unleashing violence of almost mythic proportions as he is stalked relentlessly by Javier Bardem’s coin-flipping psycho killer Anton Chigurh, one of the most nightmarish movie villains of the 21st century. Throughout, the directors toy with the conventions of the classical western, imbuing it with their trademark dark comedy and shivery suspense set-pieces worthy of Hitchcock.
