The story of King George VI of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it.
Helena Bonham Carter
In rural Texas, welder and hunter Llewelyn Moss discovers the remains of several drug runners who have all killed each other in an exchange gone violently wrong. Rather than report the discovery to the police, Moss decides to simply take the two million dollars present for himself. This puts the psychopathic killer, Anton Chigurh, on his trail as he dispassionately murders nearly every rival, bystander and even employer in his pursuit of his quarry and the money. As Moss desperately attempts to keep one step ahead, the blood from this hunt begins to flow behind him with relentlessly growing intensity as Chigurh closes in. Meanwhile, the laconic Sherrif Ed Tom Bell blithely oversees the investigation even as he struggles to face the sheer enormity of the crimes he is attempting to thwart. Written by

Josh Brolin broke his shoulder in a motorcycle accident two days after winning the part in this film. In an interview with NOW magazine, he reported thinking as he flew over the car that hit him, "Fucking shit! I really wanted to work with the Coens." His injury turned out to be non-issue since his character is shot in the shoulder very early in the film. See more »
When Anton is entering Llewelyn Moss's trailer, he picks up his mail, however there is no mail slot in the door and trailer doors are manufactured with rubber weather stripping, preventing air (or mail) from being slipped under. See more »
Ed Tom Bell:
I was sheriff of this county when I was twenty-five years old. Hard to believe. My grandfather was a lawman; father too. Me and him was sheriffs at the same time; him up in Plano and me out here. I think he's pretty proud of that. I know I was. Some of the old time sheriffs never even wore a gun. A lotta folks find that hard to believe. Jim Scarborough'd never carried one; that's the younger Jim. Gaston Boykins wouldn't wear one up in Comanche County. I always liked to hear about ...

In Terrel, the veteran from Vietnam and retired welder Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) accidentally finds many trucks and a gang of drug dealers dead while hunting in the desert. Moss discovers also a wallet with two million dollars and decides to bring it home and not report his finding to the police. Meanwhile the owners of the money assign the psychopath killer Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) to chase Moss following the transponder in the wallet and leaving a trail of murders. Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), from the third generation of a family of men-of-law, investigates the crimes while questions the momentum of violence of his country.
"No Country for Old Men" is a pretentious and overrated movie of Ethan and Joel Cohen. The authors blended the old story lines of Sam Raimi's "A Simple Plan" with Robert Harmon's "The Hitcher" plus some cheap philosophy to write this story. The result is not bad at all, with good performances and an unrecognizable Javier Bardem in the role of a psychopath killer. Unfortunately the story fails with its inconclusive conclusion. Surprisingly this average movie is ranked Top 250 # 79 in IMDb. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Onde os Fracos Não Tem Vez" ("Where the Weaks do not Have Chance")
