No Country for Old Men
so saw this yesterday, thought it was an amazing film, but can someone give me the spoiler or summary of the end? when that sheriff was talking, i was tired and kinda slept through that and than... you know.

anyone want to explain it to me?

it was great film and the pacing was superb up to when the sheriff visits that guy with the cats...

Re: No Country for Old Men
I haven't seen this yet as Portland is one of the second/third class release tier cities, but having read the book, and quite a few reviews, I have a feeling the film's screenplay adheres to the book's closing scenes too.

I know a person here has seen it.

Re: No Country for Old Men
yeah... but if you slept through the scene, maybe you should just see it again to figure out what it means. it's not like it's a bad movie that seeing a second time would be too boring to do.

There is, of course, the novel to seek out as well.

Re: No Country for Old Men
I saw this last night with Aaron and a few other people from work and I thought it was pretty great. In the last 1/4 of the film I think it goes a little bit off as the Coen's fantastic moviemaking clashes with some of what I assume is the more philosophical moments of the source material and instead of carrying the momentum of what's come before it just sort of ends on some deep thoughts, mannn; I guess my reaction here was I get it rather than feel it.

But, the vast majority of this film is highly recommended. It's intense.

Re: No Country for Old Men
This was an interesting experience watching this film as it produeced somewhat similar emotions/reactions as when I read the novel. There are points in both the novel and the film that one becomes enthralled and wrapped up in the intensity of the moment. I feel it's somewhat difficult to go into greater detail and elaborate on some of what I'm trying to get at without spoiling some of the story so I was stop there.

However this film is something that feels like the perfect marriage of two different mediums. You have the incredibly talented filmmakers and a wonderfully crafted novel from a great writer.

Re: No Country for Old Men
A week or so back, the Coen Brothers along with Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem were on Charlie Rose. The entire show is available online. It's worth a watch.

Re: No Country for Old Men
This isn't much of a spoiler:

Tommy Lee's character is basically saying things ain't like they used to be, and the way things are now shocks him so much he doesn't want to carry on doing what he was doing. Think about the speech at the beginning and what he says at the end.

Bottom line here is that it's not a Hollywood ending for sure.

Re: No Country for Old Men
great movie. gets better when you leave it for sure though. watching just felt like the coen brothers knew how to make a quiet, gravely brutal place in their movies and this was just... refining that. but thinking about bardem's performance and world they live in and the shifts in decisions and setting made me want to see it again, so i'm doing that today.
