Fifth about The Seventh

No Country for Old Men

No Country for Old Men: a solid, grim film. It has no-frills, simple story which is made special by a great gallery of characters. The cast is, therefore, of great importance, and they deliver in spades; while Javier Bardem has the meatier role, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin are both equally good. While it’s the darkness that dominates, there’s also a great sense of irony that is present; it’s a serious film made by people who have a sense of humor (needless to say that the Coen brothers qualify for that), even if they don’t aim at making fun of anything. Beautifully shot by Roger Deakins, who makes the most out of the great vistas and small spaces.
