NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN

The Coen brothers have assembled a brilliant cast with Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin to bring this sinister, simmering, Southwestern tale to the screen. Brolin is a young hunter who stumbles on a stash of cash; Jones is the honest sheriff who tries to make things right; and Bardem is the personification of evil; in this story of a drug deal gone bad.

It's kind of funny -- I love the Coen brothers. I love Tommy Lee Jones. I thought Javier Bardem was terrifying. Woody Harrelson and Stephen Root were great in small roles. In fact, I thought this was a very good movie all around -- but not quite the career-capping accomplishment it seems a lot of the critics think it is. And I can't really say why. Well worth seeing in any case, though.
