Craving Coens

Specifically, the fantastic brothers that have this guy seared into my dreams:

Javier Bardem-No Country For Old Men

It has been almost two weeks since I watched No Country For Old Men, and I still can’t stop thinking about it.  I left the theatre with so many images haunting me:

Javier Bardem2-No Country For Old Men

This is Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh, hands down one of the best villians I have ever seen in a movie.  He is fantastic, but so are Tommy Lee Jones & Josh Brolin.

I love the vastness of the dry Texas land and the violent storm beginning on the horizon.  This movie’s landscapes really made me homesick for Wyoming.  Anyway, I now have a new favorite Coen Brothers  film, which is quite a feat.  I love so many of their movies, from Fargo to the Big Lebowski, Raising Arizona to Blood Simple.  With this film, they have mastered their craft and made something that will provide chills, thrills and philosophical introspection for generations to come.  I guess it is apparent that I highly recommend No Country For Old Men.  If you’ve seen it, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    I better add that one to the list to see this season. The Golden Compass and Sweeney Todd are right up there too!

    So strange I would read this today. Yesterday, David and I went to see this fricking fantastic film.

    At first, I thought it looked like Wyoming…thought of you.

    Then this morning, I woke up and the first thing I was thinking of was this film, and I was thinking about it in visual form. Truly impressive, the Coen Brothers are.

    Also, not sure if you have been experiencing the fervent onslaught of West Texas lately. From Marfa to surrounding West Texas towns, this is the infamous new Hollywood. And New York’s art world. Combined. Kinda cool, kinda scary.

    Anyway, I agree that this film is the Coen’s refining their craft. Awesome.

    Also weird…

    As I was commenting on your post, David made this post.

    Great minds all around, huh?

    Readin from the book of DUH! I loved this film as well. I have to see it again. Way too much to soak up in one viewing.

    I’ve been wanting to see this film for awhile now. I think you just convinced me to get my ass to the theater.
