No Country for Old Men (2007)

Director: Joel & Ethan Coen

Starring: Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem

More Info: IMDB

Tagline: There Are No Clean Getaways

Plot: Violence and mayhem ensue after a hunter stumbles upon some dead bodies, a stash of heroin and more than $2 million in cash near the Rio Grande.

My Rating: 10/10

Would I watch it again? duh

Not much to say about this. It's amazing. Every aspect is magnificent. The cinematography, the look, the feel, the acting, the very sparse score (which is nice for a film to know when NOT to use music, and I am a film music freak), the script and dialogue, line deliveries, Bardem's star-making role. It's the Coen brothers' most mature film to date. These guys are amazing.

The Blu-ray disc is breathtaking. My computer doesn't have a BR drive so no screen shots are from the disc. I popped it in to show someone how great BR looks during the first few minutes and we all ended up glued till the end (and for most of us it was the 2nd or 3rd viewing). It's a remarkable picture that deserves your attention.
