No Country For Old Men is the epitome of where films like this only dream to achieve. The movie challenges it's viewers into delving into the atrocious mind of a human being and decide what goes on in there. It's cinema at it's best.
Everything works perfectly in the movie. The writing is brilliant, and it remains so all the way through. It acts as a catalyst for what really the movie has got to offer, and it maintains it's…
"The crime you see now, it's hard to even take its measure. It's not that I'm afraid of it. I always knew you had to be willing to die to even do this job. But, I don't want to push my chips forward and go out and meet something I don't understand. A man would have to put his soul at hazard. He'd have to say, "O.K., I'll be part of this world."

Javier Bardem can't be stopped.
From a year full of many truly great cinema contenders, this is still among the greatest of Oscar Best Picture winners
Horrifying, thought-provoking, and easily the most mature and powerful movie in years.
If the ending fails,
The failure is yours and not
That of the Coens.
It's a fantastic film, The Coen Brothers are at their best with No Country For Old Men, it's marvellous. It's got a great cast with the likes of Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem and Woody Harrelson. Javier Bardem is such a fantastic actor, and great at playing the baddie we've seen him play baddies in films like Skyfall,he can make a scene simple as a coin toss really intense and saying silly words like friendo sound life threaten.…
A staggering work of genius from the Coen brothers. Every image, every frame and every word is crafted to perfection. On the surface, this is a gloriously tense thriller with nods to films like The Terminator, but if you dig a little, there's a subliminal allegory in every moment.
You can enjoy it without thinking about it, and the beautiful land- and sound-scapes are hauntingly beautiful. Javier Bardem is breathtaking as the cold-as-ice, bat-shit-insane killer. Tommy Lee Jones' small-town lawman…
BEST PICTURE RUNDOWN - #1
No Country For Old Men. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2007.
"... even in the contest between man and steer, the issue is not certain."
Wow. Exhilarating would be a wonderful way to describe this film, because it is a constant in every second of every scene. Even little scenes like two people in a diner, your heart does not stop beating.
All three men who star in this movie deliver…
In my opinion, one of the most entertaining Best Picture winners in a while. It's a relatively straight-forward story, but the execution in nearly all aspects is masterful.
The Coen Brothers directing almost always results in good shit and this is some of their best. This is also one of the most beautifully shot movies I've seen in recent memory thanks to Roger Deakins, of course. Give that son of a bitch an Oscar already.
Javier Bardem was scary as…
Ed Tom Bell: Now that's aggravatin'.
Ed Tom Bell: [points to a bottle of milk] Still sweatin'.
Wendell: Whoa, Sheriff! We just missed him! We gotta circulate this! On Radio!
Ed Tom Bell: Alright. What we circulate? Lookin' for a man who has recently drunk milk?
The Coens have a few masterpieces on their resume, and No Country is definitely one of them. When all is said and done, this'll probably be the film that they'll have to live up to. They're most violent movie, but also perhaps their most accessible.
This is my favorite movie of all time. This is the film that got everything started.
