TOP 100 MOVIES in 2007!
Violence and mayhem ensue after a hunter stumbles upon some dead bodies, a stash of heroin and more than $2 million in cash near the Rio Grande.
In the first 5 minutes of this film you understand you're not watching a typical movie that comes of out Hollywood. Personally maybe it was the preconceived notion I had as I knew I was about to watch a Coen Brothers movie based on a great book by Pulitzer Prize winner author Cormac McCarthy. It probably was as I had a lot of expectations for this film.
And this film was of one those rare instances where the hype matched the final product as No Country for Old Men is a terrific film all around.
The Coens Brother's make films about middle-America and there's usually some money involved that changes people's worlds. And it always changes people for the worst. There body of work is basically about how money is the great demon and addiction of the USA society.
The plot is rich and so are the characters. Roger Deakins, the Coen Brothers regular Director of Photography shot a hell of a film as he even doubled at the key cameraman. And there really is almost no musical score in this film as we seem to be so far inside of the North American landscape that only silence and stillness can really be heard.
One of the great refreshers of this film was how they showed the Police department. There isn't any phony superman detective solving the crime and making the world a better place like they do in the two dozen TV shows on the air today. This film is reality. Perhaps too much reality for most people.
The great thing about this film is the richness of every single scene. There are so many great characters in this film as it's like the Coen Brothers are showing us every single character type in middle America. Most people are good people in this world. It's just the 1% that seems to fuck everything up.
Must see film. I'm sure the Academy will be very kind to No Country for Old Men come Oscar time.
