No Country for Old Men

I just saw this movie tonight and was blown away.  I was just wondering what everyone else thought?

It's amazing. I'm gonna need to think about it a bit more and write my thoughts. Really really amazing.
What? What are you talking about? It's girls and spaghetti. We love girls and spaghetti.

Last night as I exited from the theater I was having doubts about the ending. It felt too sudden. I didn't know what to think. I also wondered about the mental state that I was in while watching this movie. Then I realized, I absolutely had to see this movie again. One of the year's best movies.

It's the best movie of the year, and it may be the best Coen Brothers movie ever. The more I think about this movie the more I love it. I will see it again soon.

Which part of the ending is getting people down? I really liked it personally.

The tense scene in the hotel room where he could see the feet under the door was awesome, and then the chase that followed it was a classic too.

Good stuff all around.

that scene is more tense than almost any "horror" film, you know that the doorknob was going to be blown off, and I still jumped

i think that the lack of music in the movie also added to the tension

Totally.

There were a lot of great moments in the film. That horrible bit where he turns around and sees that his car has been joined by another up in the hill stands out too.

I really liked all the characters. All the supporting ones felt like real people. Kelly MacDonald was great - she never gets enough high profile parts.

I love the scene at the beginning where Chigurh kills the deputy. The focus more on Chigurh than who he is killing and it makes it is so much creeper. I love it!
