Aro Favourite No Country for Old Men

 

USA 2007, 122 minutes
Dir. Joel Coen
Rating: [R]
Genres: Suspense/Crime / Serial Killers, Heist

 

Aroview: A masterfully executed thriller from the Coen brothers, who return to the suspense-driven fatalism of their most admired films (BLOOD SIMPLE, FARGO) in adapting Cormac McCarthy’s south-western heist novel.

Acquiring a suitcase of money in the aftermath of a botched drug deal, an opportunistic Everyman (Brolin) finds himself the target of a relentless contract killer (Oscar winner Bardem) whose ceaseless – and indiscriminately bloody – pursuit must go down as one of cinema’s most terrifying. With formidable precision and screen craft, the Coens deliver their most air-tight and horrific film to date; notable, also, for its unremitting bleakness, virtually devoid of the brothers’ trademark black humour and eccentricity.
