The Coen brothers’ breathtaking adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s novel is one of the finest crime thrillers ever produced. A nerve-wracking and original screenplay with sly wit and tense action sequences is played out brilliantly by a cast which includes Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Tommy Lee Jones and Kelly Macdonald.
No Country for Old Men manages to surpass the Coens’ earlier smash-hit thriller Fargo (1996). It has won them many international awards, including the 2008 Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director.
An ultra-cool film, No Country for Old Men stands firmly in Wonderful Cinema’s list of All-Time Top 10 Favourite Films.

That is a very very good movie, I loved…
I watched it many times
This was Javier Bardem’s movie. He should have won the Oscar for Best Actor, not Best Supporting.
Great movie !
Not a happy film, but one that says something and makes you think.
The line no country for old men is from TS Eliot
