'No Country for Old Men' a masterpiece

-A A +A
By Quninn McCulloch

My Score 4.5/5You may know the Coen brothers, that is, Joel and Ethan Coen, from such films as “Hudsucker Proxy,” “Barton Fink,” “Blood Simple,” “Oh Brother Where Art Thou,” “Fargo,” “Raising Arizona,” well, the list goes on and on. The number of quality films this writing/directing/producing duo has come out with since the 1980s is astounding. Their films have received worldwide recognition, and “A” list talent like George Clooney and Matt Damon seek to collaborate with them. Their latest work, “No Country for Old Men,” shot mostly in New Mexico, is not only a great addition to their ever-growing list of credits, but perhaps also one of their finest works to date.Near the beginning of this film, Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) happens upon a heroin deal gone wrong in the middle of the desert. Amidst the numerous dead bodies littering the site, Llewelyn finds a case with $2 million and decides it must be his lucky day. Soon after running with the money, Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) shows up to claim the money, only to find that it is missing. This marks the beginning of a ruthless, bloody quest for Chigurh to retrieve the case of cash. Like a cold, unemotional machine who’s only purpose is to judge and take life, Chigurh spares no one in his path.
