No Country for Old Men

Movie of the Year Runner-up 2007

No Country for Old Men is an interesting, violent and unpredictable movie by the Coen brothers. The movie was based on a novel by Cormac McCarthy.

In the summer of 1980 when Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) is out huntnig in Texas he spots several cars in the open country. When he gets closer to the cars he encounters a bunch of corpses, a lot of drugs, and two million dollars in cash. The dead people apparently murdered each other in a drug deal gone wrong.

Llewelyn Moss falls for the temptation and takes the money. This turns out to be a huge mistake since he gets the psychopathic killer Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) go after him.

No Country for Old Men won 4 Oscars for Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Director (Ethan Coen and Joel Coen), Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Javier Bardem as the crazy killer Anton Chigurh) and Best Adapted Screenplay, and was nominated for another 4 Oscars: Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing, Best Sound and Best Sound Editing.

No Country for Old Men may have received the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture of the Year, but here this movie is only a runner-up.
