Life Changes in Just One Minute in 'No Country for Old Men'

Hello, and welcome back to another movie review. Today’s movie is No Country for Old Men. It was directed, written, and produced by Joel and Ethan Coen. Considered their greatest movie today and one of the greatest movies in the 21st century, No Country for Old Men is a must-watch movie. No Country takes place in southwest Texas and follows Llewelyn Moss (played by Josh Brolin) who stumbles upon a drug deal gone bad. He finds a briefcase full of  $2 million, and he keeps it. Anton Chigurh (played by Javier Bardem) is a sadistic hitmen who is sent after Moss to recover the money. Also appearing is Tommy Lee Jones who plays Ed Bell, an elderly sheriff who is after Moss and Chigurh.

The Coen brothers take on different themes, but the film mostly deals with coincidence and fate, illustrating how in just one minute, a life can be completely turned around. No Country is brilliantly directed and written by the Coen brothers, and Javier Bardem’s performance might be one of the best supporting performance’s besides Heath Ledger’s Joker in this century. If you haven’t seen this movie, I plead with you to see it, as it’s on Netflix. It is truly a  spectacular movie that will leave you on the edge of your seat. I easily give this movie 4 out of 4 stars and two big thumbs up.

Editor’s Note: This movie is Rated R for strong graphic violence and some language
