NO COUN­TRY FOR OLD MEN

The Coen broth­ers ( Fargo) are in bril­liant form with a haunting, hard- bit­ten and in­con­gru­ously aff ect­ing chase fl ick based on the Cor­mac McCarthy novel. Josh Brolin stars as a hunter who fi nds $ 2 mil­lion in a brief­case, and a fright­en­ing Javier Bar­dem plays a mer­ci­less killer out to re­trieve the cash. Though sev­eral scenes are ex­tremely vi­o­lent and un­apolo­get­i­cally amoral, there is a chill­ing com­po­sure to the fi lm as a whole that will not be de­nied. Highly rec­om­mended.
