No Country for Old Men, by Cormac McCarthy

Categorized in:


My third exposure (two viewings of the movie) raises my certainty that this is one of the great stories of recent decades. A few things struck me: the movie hews faithfully to the book; Chigurh seems supernatural in the film but insane in the book; McCarthy’s ear for phrase turns is unequalled.
