No Country For Old Men

This is hands down one of the best films ever made. Classic. I have no words to describe the beauty of the writing, performances, music and directing.

Listen to the soundtrack.

The Length of the Soundtrack is actually 5 minutes long. You can listen to it fully at Carter Burwell's official site down in the right hand there is a player.

I fell asleep during this movie!
It is way too long and needs more music in the background! Characters have way too less speach and the story was really boring.
We can breath in space,
they just don't want us to escape...

Yes I am, I did not fall asleep. Though I thought the story was boring enough to sleep through.

Yeah I can't really see what all the fuss was about over that. I just didn't get it. I thought the story was boring nothing really seemed to happen.

I'm all for slow-paced films but I don't think I was ever once interested in anything that was happening in No Country. So Javier Bardam made you feel a bit uncomfortable...it kinda takes more than that for me to think a film is good.

Didn't get Tommy Lee Jones' character at all. What was his story? Didn't really know what the main character was doing either.

Yeah just didn't really understand. Kinda feel that maybe there wasn't anything to get - just it was a slow-paced, serious Coen Brothers film so people decided it had to be good.

I'll accept the directing, acting and music probably were all fantastic though. Just those alone don't do it for me.

I didn't like The Godfather either :(

Yeah is that similar to No Country? I heard them often mentioned together in the run up to the oscars ect a couple of years ago.

Yeah if it's anything like No Country I'm probs not going to enjoy it no lol.

Critical acclaim is overated. I rarely like films that critics say are good.

That's why I'm a Night fan :D

I enjoyed No Country For Old Men a lot, but I thought There Will Be Blood was superior in every way. I'm one of the few in that group, but it's my personal opinion that There Will Be Blood is probably the greatest film made this decade, but I usually keep that to myself because I usually get BURNED for it.

It was really hard for me to compare NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN & THERE WILL BE BLOOD. Both are unique and one of the best films ever made. I am talking text book perfect. Last time we saw a text book perfect film was THE GODFATHER movies. I have no words to describe, but I guess you have to
be a fan of storie, tales, history, reality, writing, directing. To me No Country and There Will Be Blood are timeless classics of our time.

It's incredibly hard to compare the two...NCFOM and TWBB are two of the most precise, beautiful, near-perfect films ever made, IMO. I try to say TWBB is more intense, but then I remember the hotel scene from NCFOM with the lights in the hallway...one of the most tense scenes ever caught on film!!! Both films are so vastly different that it's hard to compare them, while they're so similar in ways that it's hard not to compare them. It's really weird that they came out at the same time, were being filmed at the same time at the same location, and were both top runners in the oscars. Kind of a weird anomaly :)

I love how both movies are directed. There is unique style in them and kind of similar. Sometimes I feel that makers wanted to compete. For example the beginning of THERE WILL BE BLOOD is hills, plains, and no diologue. Just a beautiful siren type music fills the screen. Then they show the main character working under ground and almost 5 to 6 minutes of the film its silent. It reminded of old era movies with no sound just music and text on the screen. Very beautifully shot.

In No Country For Old Men. We see hills, plains, in the beginning and then Voice Over Narration. Very unique.
