    This film is endlessly rewatchable, endlessly quotable. Fantastic performances, writing, and directing. Maybe the Coen's best.

    "Por que a canção de Bobby Womack, 'Across 110th Street', está presente em quase todos os filmes de gangsters?". Esta pergunta ecoou em minha cabeça por dias. Quentin Tarantino, por exemplo, a utiliza em Jackie Brown. Ridley Scott também a utiliza no recente American Gangster...
    Seria devido à melodia funk? Ou seria pelo simples fato dela ser ótima mesmo? A dúvida perdurou por um bom tempo até o dia em que prestei atenção a letra e encontrei a.possível resposta: lá…

    When I think of the Coen Brothers, I normally think of what quirky film they have up their sleeves next. However, this dark violent drama from them is simply outstanding. It's high level of acting and screenplay marry well. It's an edge of your seat thrill especially the performance of Bardem.

    A wholly genius film.

    There is a strong permeating feeling of permanence in No Country For Old Men. Of something preordained and unchangeable. Not like fate, far from that. Something perpetual that operates freely and without mercy. Flowing invariably, remarkably so. The haunts of our lives, the guardians of myth. What becomes of constants?

    The central themes of No Country For Old Men are those of male impotence, generational emasculation, and death. These themes are surprisingly easy to recognize and…

    The Coens' prose (in a cinematic sense) is just as creative and ingenius as the book's author Cormac McCarthy. There's so much going on within nothing, that it becomes endlessly intriguing.

    From Brolin's similarity to Bardem (e.g. paying for a teen's shirt when they're at their weakest), to the lack of empathy placed upon characters...and of course, the end dreams.

    I know there's a lot of debate as to what they mean. But what if they really mean nothing? What…

    The Coen Brothers are capable of crafting fucking fantastic movies. We know this to be true, and it's proven with the likes of Fargo and Miller's Crossing. I must admit to not having seen their entire filmography, but for me it was their Minnesota dark comedy that reigned supreme in the Coen hierarchy...

    Until No Country for Old Men. A masterpiece in every sense of the word, it doesn't adhere to any genre conventions or categorization. On the surface, it's…

    All the vague history between Carson Wells and Anton Chigurh makes me think there is a buddy cop prequel in there somewhere.

    You can't stop what's coming.

    This never crossed my mind the first three times watching No Country, but there is almost no soundtrack in the entire film. There are a few ominous beats that barely register to the ear, and the rest is glorious room-tone. There's a brilliant moment where Moss calls the hotel clerk just killed by Chigurh, and we can hear both the beep on Moss's phone and the ringing of the clerk's phone just following, and so…
