No Country For Old Men
Truly this is a great film. A simple story, yes, simply characters? Hell no! We get a hitman in the form of Javier Bardem that is unlike any character you are likely to see. You know what this guy is about from the moment you see him, Javier really made this character something you will remember. Josh Brolin as the man he is after is so great, another fantastic performance from him. Tommy Lee Jones is Tommy Lee Jones, he's great as always. I loved Woody Harrelson in his small role, he took it and he ran with it. The visual in this are great, raw and dirty! The music fits perfectly, flows so well. The tag line for this film is 'There are no clean getaways' and may how that rings true. Highly recommend this one, and I certainly want to watch it again!
