4. NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
The film was absolutely perfect for so long, and the Coen Brothers were making perfection look so easy. Then it makes a sudden left turn at the end, going mythic and leaving many a dissatisfied audience in its wake. I complained too. I get what they’re going for and I really like what the film has to say, but I can’t help wondering if there was a better way to get there.
I was always told that the last 20 minutes of No Country would grow on me over time, but it's had the opposite effect, slowly tainting the high quality of everything that comes before.
