No Country for Old Men is a Winner — 9 Comments

  1. That’s a big 10-4 old buddy. I agree with you 100 percent. I loved the movie. I would also buy it. And, I don’t know how many time I’ll watch Fargo – I’m still counting.

    Great post, and great blog. One little problem, however, my iMac can’t see your comments link. It would help if you would make it a different color. Also, the writing in this comments section is so light against the white background that I can barely make it out.

    HAve a nice day, ans stop by my Swubird site sometime.

  2. @Swubird: Thanks for the feedback on the site. I know I have some problems, but my code monkey has been out of pocket. It looks OK in FF, but other browsers are problems. Actually, the site looks like crap compared to what I want! (view in FF for best results.)
    I’ll drop by your place.

  3. Right there with you, GLS. No Country was great. The book was also fantastic. I’ve heard rumors that two more Cormac McCarthy novels are headed for the big screen right now: The Road (oddly enough, this is also an Oprah’s Book Club book) and Blood Meridian. A word of warning, though: if you thought No Country was violent, these two make it look like an episode of The Smurfs: At one point while I was reading The Road, I actually slammed the book down and got up to walk it off — Brutal stuff, but in that sublime kind of way.

  4. @Harry Weisenheimmer: Since I saw the ending twice, one out of context and heard the reaction, I figured I would feel the same as you and them.
    When I saw it in context, I thought it was about right. No happy ending to that story. No justice. Just life goes on.
