No Country for old men

One of the movies I have been anxiously waiting to check out for some time now is the Coen Brothers newest flick, “No Country for Old Men.”

This movie looks incredibly bad ass.  I have been a big fan of Tommy Lee Jones ever since “The Fugitive” and Woody Harrelson since “White Men Can’t Jump.”  I have been a fan of the Joel and Ethan Coen since “Raising Arizona.”

According to the movie’s website:

“Based on the acclaimed novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Cormac McCarthy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug- runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. The story begins when Llewelyn Moss (BROLIN) finds a pickup truck surrounded by a sentry of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law – in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell (JONES) – can contain. As Moss tries to evade his pursuers – in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives (BARDEM) – the film simultaneously strips down the American crime drama and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines. “

If it’s half as good as…
