No Country for Old Men

Suspense and tension are often executed badly in movies. Many films that claim to be suspenseful are obvious exercises in cliché, signposting their moves long before they happen. The music swells, you see a shadow in the background, and you know what is coming. So when a film like No Country for Old Men comes along, with its sheer mastery of form and style, it's something to be cherished and celebrated. This is one film that will shred your nerves and have you biting your nails to the quick, through the skin and right down to the bone.

Directed and written by film making brothers Joel and Ethan Coen, and based on the book by Cormac McCarthy, No Country for Old Men is a tale of greed and violence stretching across the state of Texas. It's 1980, and Llewelyn Moss, an average down-on-his-luck good ol boy (played by Josh Brolin), has stumbled across the remains of a drug deal gone bad on the American-Mexican border. He finds dead bodies, lots of heroin, one barely alive Mexican, and two million dollars. He takes the cash, but little does he know, two men are on his trail. One is grizzled and weary sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), a man who's seen it all, and wonders what he's still doing the job for. But the other is hired hitman Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem). He strides across the Texas landscape like the devil incarnate, forcing strangers to gamble with their lives in the toss of a coin, and dispatching victims with a shot from a gas powered captive bolt pistol. He is determined to get both the money, and his man.

For twenty years Joel and Ethan Coen have been praised as imaginative, original film makers who have made an indelible contribution to cinema. Consider films like Barton Fink, Fargo, O Brother Where Art Thou and The Big Lebowski and you have some idea of what a unique voice they have in American cinema. But as great as all of those past efforts are, nothing compares to No Country for Old Men. Everything the brothers have learned in the past comes beautifully together in this elegant, simple but stunning masterpiece. The shading and complexity they've given their characters is truly awesome, never has so much been said with a breath, a turn of the head or the chewing of nuts. The Coens have given the story such weight and power. Every scene is essential, and plays like a mini-work of art. Top praise to their longtime cinematographer Roger Deakins. Fresh from doing incredible work on The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, he goes one better here, capturing the widespread vistas of the plain, as well as the cramped, claustrophobic interiors of a run down motel room. No inch of the screen is wasted. It looks perfect.

But this is not just a movie to be admired intellectually. No Country for Old Men is one of the sharpest suspense films to have ever been made. The Coens can stand proudly with other cinematic masters who have had us on the edge of our seats throughout the years. Suddenly everything is silent and dark, a character lurks outside a doorway...waiting. It's like your nerves are being tickled with razor wire. It's a bloody and confronting film, harking back to their early classics like Blood Simple and Miller's Crossing, but it's also a thoughtful meditation on life, greed and consequence.

Tommy Lee Jones is perfectly cast as the weary sheriff, Josh Brolin does wonderful things with his none-too-bright thief, but it's Javier Bardem who steals the show as the most cold-blooded, calculating and charming killer to hit the screen since Hannibal Lecter. His character is described at one stage as a ghost, and it's a pretty apt description for him and for a film that seems to have an almost supernatural quality. No Country for Old Men is so good, it's scary.

Los Angeles - Boosting their chances in the Oscars, Joel and Ethan Coen were named the best directors of 2007 for their film No Country for Old Men by The Directors Guild of America Saturday night.

The Coen brothers have received numerous critics' awards for best director, and are nominated for Oscars for best director and for adapted screenplay for their gritty contemporary Western based on the Cormac McCarthy novel.

The guild's film awards are considered pointers for the Academy Awards, scheduled for February 24 since there is a large overlap in the voting body.

The Directors Guild and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have disagreed only six times on their selections in the last 59 years.
