No Country for Old Men
Cormac McCarthy Tribute
While out hunting in West Texas, Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) finds the grisly aftermath of a drug deal. Though he knows better, he cannot resist the cash left behind and takes it with him. The hunter becomes the hunted when a merciless killer named Chigurh (Javier Bardem) picks up his trail. Also looking for Moss is Sheriff Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), an aging lawman who reflects on a changing world and a dark secret of his own, as he tries to find and protect Moss.

“One of the best films of the 21st century”– THE GUARDIAN
“What makes the movie a masterpiece, however, is not the Coens' supreme command of their craft in these scenes, but their willingness to embrace the resigned worldview of McCarthy's novel.”– Rene Rodrigues, MIAMI HERALD
“The story is vintage McCarthy in its sense of place and its poetic voice. And it is vintage Coens for some of those same traits, and its cruel, graphic violence.”– Roger Moore, ORLANDO SENTINEL
“No Country for Old Men is the first movie I've seen in a very long while that deserves to be called a masterpiece.”– Lou Lumenick, NEW YORK POST
“A masterly tale of the good, the deranged and the doomed that inflects the raw violence of the west with a wry acknowledgement of the demise of codes of honour, this is frighteningly intelligent and imaginative.”– Geoff Andrew, TIME OUT
“No Country for Old Men looks into the unfathomable depths of evil and poses existential questions about human destiny. Meanwhile, it takes your breath away.”- Harper Barnes, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
