A former assassin known as The Bride wakens from a four-year coma. The child she carried in her womb is gone. Now she must wreak vengeance on the team of assassins who betrayed her - a team she was once part of.
In rural Texas, welder and hunter Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) 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 (Javier Bardem), 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 Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) blithely oversees the investigation even as he struggles to face the sheer enormity of the crimes he is attempting to thwart.Written by

Every time Anton puts the tank down, you can hear the hollow sound of a completely empty tank. 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 could watch No Country for Old Men over and over and over again. It is that good. It is thrilling to watch every time, and so rich with meaning and precision that you learn something new each time. Javier Bardem is outstanding, and the story is so well crafted that you need to watch it a second time to really get it.
The interesting thing about No Country is that there is almost no musical scoring. It makes you so razor focused that it's impossible to look away. The first time I watched this movie, I started it on Netflix late at night, thinking I would start it and then go to bed and finish it another time. I was wrong. My eyes were glued to the TV, so immersed in the film that I watched the whole thing in that one sitting.
The Coen brothers are so awesome.
