movie thoughts: No Country for Old Men

Note to self: never attempt to watch a movie like this before bedtime.  It is just too tense!  The music was used sparingly, making for moments so silent, you could hear the actors breathing. 

I’m not sure where to begin.  No Country for Old Men is everything they said it would be.  Violent.  Graphic (well, I think, I had my eyes covered, but it sounded squishy).  Thought-provoking.  I’m happy to have seen it, but I don’t know if I could take the stress of watching it again. 

I’m afraid to say any more for fear of ruining this film.  Watch it.  The Coen brothers have come a long way from Raising Arizona. 

And now I want to read the book…
