NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
SBS, Friday, 8.30pm, MA15+ ( 2007)
Javier Bardem ( pictured) is brilliant as the killer who leaves no witnesses to his bloody pursuit of Texan cowboy Josh Brolin and the stash of stolen cash he found in the desert. Also on the hunt for the dough is hired gun Woody Harrelson, whose mouth is as big as his Stetson, while Tommy Lee Jones is the world- weary sheriff left to pick up the pieces. A clever meditation on morality, this cracking yarn is also a supremely violent and unpredictable cat- and- mouse caper that recalls the wit of the Coen brother’s cult classic Fargo.
