"No Country for Old Men"

Best Film of '07... so far.

Seriously... With "No Country" the Coen Brothers have delivered a master work and undoubtedly solidified themselves as 2 of the greatest modern Directors. "No Country" is at once a beautiful Western and an incredible thriller with a slew of stand-out performances-- Javier Bardem, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Woody Harrelson; and it's always a treat to see that guy from "Office Space" and TV's "NewsRadio", Stephen Root. But what makes this film special, as the title suggests, is that it's a story about humanity. ManwithaVan predicts a Best Picture Oscar Nomination.

eh, i felt the storyline was not anchored and the ending was as aimless as the narrative. javier was the only thing that mattered in this flick.
