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.
