Quote of the film (Tommy Lee Jones):
"I always figured when I got older....God would sort of come into my life somehow. And he didn't. And I don't blame him. If I was him I'd have the same opinion of me that he does."
No Country for Old Men is an extraordinarily violent, graphic film. Devoid of meaning or moral, this film is designed simply to disturb two hours and twenty minutes of your staid existence. I don't know if I rooted more for the bad guy, the dumb guy or the good guy more. By the time the film is over (and you wont' believe it when it is) it was hard to tell who prevailed (well, save the guy that got himself decidedly perforated).
Javier Bardem was awesome, he's got "strong, silent and deranged" down. He's got nicer hair than John Edwards.
Tommy Lee Jones was Tommy Lee Jones, which isn't a bad thing; he was made for his role and vice versa.
Not so much a date night selection but recommended nonetheless.
