Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen (USA, 2007, 122 min.). Digital.

In this brooding cat-and-mouse thriller starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Kelly Macdonald, a welder and Vietnam War veteran stumbles upon a drug deal gone wrong in the sweeping, desert landscape of 1980 West Texas. The film revisits the themes of fate, conscience, and circumstance that the Coen brothers explored in Blood Simple (1984) and Fargo (1996).

No Country for Old Men won numerous accolades across multiple organizations, including four Oscars at the 2008 Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director(s), Best Supporting Actor (Bardem), and Best Adapted Screenplay), three British Academy Film Awards, and two Golden Globes.

“The Coens’ technical abilities, and their feel for a landscape-based Western classicism reminiscent of Anthony Mann and Sam Peckinpah, are matched by few living directors.” —John Patterson, The Guardian

“A new career peak for the Coen brothers.” —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
