138 – No Country for Old Men (2007)

This shot looks just like Andy Warhols Elvis as a cowboy print.

A Coen Brothers film here and they’re back on form too.They had a couple of flops preceding this film,but you the way the work.They usually do a comedy than a serious film.I think if the casting had been different then this film could have been a bit further down the list.Josh Brolin has come a long way since The goonies.If you’ve been living in a cave,or Ireland,and haven’t seen it i’ll outline the plot for you.Brolin stumbles on a drug deal gone awry and decides to take 2 million from the scene.He’s then persude by a crazy bounty hunter hired to find him played by Bardem.Bardem says ‘fuck that’ and kills the guys who hired him and goes for the whole 2 million.So the Woody Harillson is hired to get the money and/or kill Bardem all the while Tommy Lee Jones is chasing whoever he can find.It’s a long film and when you think it’s over there’s always more and then all of a sudden,boom,roll credits.The first time i watched it it must have taken me an hour to realise it’s set in the 70’s.
